Prompt: Students were asked to design a flipped lesson and then write a blog post that showcases their flipped lesson and reaction to designing it.
The flipped lesson is an interesting concept I hope to try with my future students. Currently, teaching in a sixth grade classroom, it is highly impractical because most of my students are not allowed to have unsupervised time on a computer at home. There is also much to be considered in terms of socio-economic limitations and the need to consider access. Who can get on a computer at home and who cannot? Requiring students to access materials via a website means requiring students’ families to have a computer, and internet. That may unfairly disadvantage certain students. I chose to create a website similar to one I might have if I had my own class. I created a page on that website for students to access the content and the assignment.
