In Solving the Homework Problem by Flipping the Learning, Jonathan Bergmann, the co-founder of the flipped learning concept, shows you how. The book outlines
* why traditional homework causes dread and frustration for students,
* how flipped learning—completing the harder or more analytical aspects of learning in class as opposed to having students do it on their own—improves student learning, and
* how teachers can create flipped assignments that both engage students and advance student learning.
Bergmann introduces the idea of flipped videos, and provides step-by-step guidance to make them effective. The book also includes useful forms, a student survey, and a sample letter to send to parents explaining the flipped learning concept.
You want your students to learn, and your students want learning to be accessible. With that in mind, read through these pages, flip the learning in your classroom, and watch students get excited about homework!
