In this tutorial, you will learn the three ways that a Flipped Classroom can be differentiated for your students: lesson delivery, learning activities, and assessment modalities. Our goals are to manage in-class time required to perform flipped activities and assessments. Understanding how the flipped classroom provides an environment for individualized learning and creating a lesson plan for the assessment that occurs in the classroom is the first step towards flipping your classroom.
Understand how the flipped classroom provides an environment for individualized learning
Create a lesson plan for the assessment that will be performed in the classroom
The assessment they create will directly reflect the learning objectives they created during the previous tutorial
Cover the different types of activities a teacher can use to assess their flipped lesson
In this video tutorial, you will learn the three ways that a Flipped Classroom can be differentiated for your students - lesson delivery, learning activities, and assessment modalities. You will decide on your activities and assessments to go along with the flipped lesson you are planning on Sophia.org and make sure that your assessments and your learning objectives match up.

We have so many different types of students in our classrooms and it may seem daunting to meet all of their learning needs. However, we know there are three main learning styles (Visual, Auditory, and Kinesthetic) that most of our students use.
We can also differentiate for our students based on their Multiple Intelligences. The website linked below does an excellent job of summarizing the Multiple Intelligence Theory and providing examples, rubrics, and resources for using "Menus" (or "Think-Tac-Toe" sheets) to differentiate learning activities and assessments for our students.
With the valuable face-to-face time that we have with our students because of the Flipped Classroom, we have so many opportunities to differentiate instruction, activities, and assessments for them in order to best meet their learning needs.
Project-Based Learning is a great way to differentiate both activities and assessments in a flipped classroom. Below are some links that will get you started thinking about PBL.
1. Have you thought about how your flipped lesson is going to meet the individual student needs that exist in your classroom?
2. Have you determined what in-class activities and assessment(s) will accompany the lesson in order to give you evidence that the learning objectives are being met? Have you set a timelines for these activities and assessments?
3. Have you verified that the assessment(s) you have created match with your learning objectives?
