It started with a simple observation: Students need their teachers present to
answer questions or to provide help if they get stuck on an assignment; they
don’t need their teachers present to listen to a lecture or review content. From
there, Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams began the flipped classroom: Students
watched recorded lectures for homework and completed their assignments, labs,
and tests in class with their teacher available. What Bergmann and Sams found
was that their students demonstrated a deeper understanding of the material than
ever before. This is the authors’ story, and they’re confident it can be yours
Learn what a flipped classroom is and why it works, and get the information

cost much to implement, and helps foster self-directed learning. Once you flip,
you won’t want to go back!
