This is a live recording of Heather Witten's Flipping for Fluency webinar from November 13, 2102.
When you say, "my students don't do homework" and you say "they work their butt off and do the work in class" Does that mean that the "flipped class" is not done at home. So it is flipped in the sense that they have video access that they can repeat as often as necessary and they can work at their own pace?
Sorry I didn't answer sooner. I hadn't been checking this site as often as I should have been.
It is a two part answer really. My students are encouraged to watch the videos at home for homework. I hold them accountable even if there is Internet trouble at school. That being said, many students realize quickly that if they stay n task during class, they can do the work during class time, not for homework.
Students do review videos if they need help, and before assessments if needed. Since all the listening and lots of culture information is also on the website where I post my videos, they can work in those as much as they would like.
I would encourage you to check out my blog if you haven't already at www.spanishflippedclass.blogspot.com because it can answer many questions. I also put upcoming presentations and helpful documents on the blog as well. All of my contact information is there if you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to email me!
I can't access this video. Any reasons why?I would like to watch it!
Do the students look at the grammar videos at home?
Students are encouraged to watch the videos at home, but if they can get it all done in class, often watch them in class. Sometimes this is great because with the more complex subjects, they watch them together and start questioning and explaining it to each other right away!
