The Flipped Classroom Model
I am a huge fan of the flipped classroom. If you are passionate about teaching creativity as well as teaching creatively, I would recommend that you plan flipping some of your lessons. A flipped lesson is when you allow students to learn at their own pace, preferably at home using guided video but can also be part of the classroom day. When you flip the classroom, direct instruction is done with video or readings. The benefit of video is that the student can stop, forward and slow down depending on their own needs. That way you can use class time for higher order thinking skills. Creative teachers are comfortable trying something new – if you haven’t flipped a lesson yet. Why not try it out?
