In the traditional classroom, teachers lecture on the material in class and send home assignments based on the lectures. In a "flipped" classroom that structure is turned around - my class lectures are posted in videos online, allowing students to listen and take notes at their own pace and time, and revisit lectures for review. These lectures will be provided to students in Google Classroom on their DISD Portal, and can also be found at Youtube.com on my channel MrSteinersClass.Note taking for all students should be done in the Cornell Notes format. It also means that after initial notes are complete, we follow up with the 3 R's of note taking:Revisit: we always go back to our notes for studyReview: we highlight important items, study vocabulary, and read the summariesRevise: we add or change to improve - comments, illustrations, questions, etc.
