Planning my First Flipped Lesson

I started following Kirk Humphreys (@kirk_humphreys) on twitter a few days ago. He has a flipped classroom unlike any I’ve ever seen. His students have taken complete control of their learning. They even decide how they will be assessed (sometimes). I have been researching for several days and decided that Tuesday, I am going to introduce my students in my Algebra I class to flipped lessons. I am not sure what is going to happen.

My students will watch the video on their phones (computers are all being used for the state test) and take notes in class. I will then have a student go up to the board and show the class what s/he thinks s/he understands about the topic in the video. When finished, the student will pick another student who will do the same thing. The other students are to listen, question, correct, and try to understand what is being presented (They have already been trained to do that). When students are satisfied, I will display:
“Prove to me that you know these standards by giving me examples and solving them to prove your understanding. You may make your own problems, find your own problems, or look up your own problems. You may collaborate with others, but you must turn in your own product, a I need to assess you individually. You may use any way you like to prove to me you understand the standards.” (credit for everything in quotes to Kirk Humphreys).

At the end of class, I will assign another video, this time for homework.

To accomplish this, I need to have both videos available to students in an easily accessible place before class on Tuesday. I’m thinking Google Drive. I will also have small whiteboards, wall white boards, graph paper, colored pencils, and graphing calculators available for students to use during class. I’m excited!
