In the midst of the COVID pandemic, the flipped classroom has taken center stage. Students are learning at home, and teachers are navigating either a hybrid or all virtual learning environment. A flipped classroom can help students build background knowledge and schema maximizing in-person instruction time. In a flipped classroom, students complete the traditional lecture and/or instruction on their own, and then come to class prepared to analyze, use, or apply that knowledge. The flipped classroom model is based on an inverted Bloom's taxonomy pyramid. Students work on the remember and understand portion for homework/virtual learning before class. In class, they apply and and analyze their learning with the teacher for guidance. Students can then move on to evaluating and creating with help as needed. The teacher releases the role of instructor for the role of a facilitator. This shift will have to be explained to parents and other stakeholders because they might not understand why their children are learning this way. The following resources can help teachers implement a flipped classroom and justify its use to someone unfamiliar with the concept.
