Thanks for stopping by! As part of my efforts to create as many classroom instructional minutes as possible, I use a concept called "flipped classroom instruction." Check out some examples and explanations of the concept here:
To this end, I have transitioned the majority of my notetaking workload to outside normal school hours, by providing brief, concise videos of relevant skills on my website, our (eventual) Google Classroom site, and/or my YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyciRe7TxV8lWuXy6nfYBgA).
To reach all of my students, the following policies are put in place:
1. ALL STUDENTS HAVE EQUAL OPPORTUNITY TO ACCESS CONTENT. Whether students access videos at home, on a mobile device using Wi-Fi, at a friend's house, OR AT SCHOOL (when need exists), no student will be denied math content- ever. I typically offer a VIDEO SESSION for all classes during lunchtime once per unit. I am also available to pull students from PE, if necessary.
2. ALL VIDEOS ARE EASILY ACCESSIBLE, ON ANY DEVICE/PLATFORM. All videos are found on YouTube, which is universally accessible. Please see the link above.
3. VIDEO NOTES COUNT AS A HOMEWORK GRADE.
Questions? Please let me know. As situations arise, I am committed to ensuring EVERYONE has a positive experience AND gets a world-class education!
