Flipped Lessons

I utilize Flipped Lessons as a homework assignment to facilitate student’s grasp of content. This allows the student to come into class understanding the theory of what we will be doing in class, while providing us more time during our class meetings to experience hands on learning. These are two examples of Flipped Lessons I’ve used to teach two of the nine Viewpoints.
