Homework in a Flipped Classroom
ASCD author Aaron Sams explains how flipped classrooms use class time to practice and apply skills learned during prerecorded lectures. Homework becomes classwork, and lectures and other content traditionally presented during class time are viewed outside of class, at home, on a personal device, or in a school-based resource room.
In the excerpt "Does Flipping Your Classroom Increase Homework Time?" from Flip Your Classroom: Reach Every Student in Every Class Every Day (ASCD & ISTE, 2012), Sams and coauthor Jonathan Bergmann expand on the potential effect on homework in flipped classrooms and provide some pointers for creating equitable learning environments where all students can equally participate.
