Reflections on Chapter 3
Excerpts from the book are in bold text.
Flip Your Classroom by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams
This book was the basis of my research, because the ideas developed by Bergmann and Sams were so inspirational to me. I watched their TED talks and YouTube videos, read parts of their books, and have included them in my list of resources for the website.
As a result of this inspiration, I chose to try flipping my middle school mathematics classroom. As I have gone through the program, I have shared my experiences and my own excitement as I gradually flipped one lesson. And having done so, I have had cause to repeat numerous times what the authors state in their first paragraph: that I can never go back to the old paradigms of instruction.
The author is a proud mother and wife, living in Sonoma, Ca. She has 21 years teaching mathematics. She loves technology and how it enhances student learning, engagement, and achievement.
