The Secret to Flipping Your Classroom

Yesterday I had a wonderful coaching session with one of my middle school Spanish teachers.  She’s been trying out flipping her classroom with great success.  Before she started doing this I told her to include a “secret” word in her flipped classroom videos to make sure that her students watched them.

She hasn’t been doing this for every video, but once in a while she includes a secret word (like swimming pig)  at random in a video.  The next morning she asks her kids to tell her the secret word as they walk in.  She immediately knows who has watched the video and who has not.

Getting students to do their homework is always a challenge, but this little strategy might help those who are attempting to flip their classroom.
