Flipping Your Ancient Civilizations and Early European History Classes
3 In-service Credits/ 45 Hours Instructor: Valerie Hanley June 1-28, August 1-30, December 1-30
Flipping your class has become a new way to transform the learning environment in your classroom. Instead of the teacher presenting lectures in class, students receive the background lecture material in the form of videos and audio clips that are either self-made or found online. In this course, you will explore several ancient civilizations as well as key time periods in European history as you create flipped model lessons and projects for your students. The activities and projects you design will be new, exciting, and Common Core-based. Drawing on the Common Core standards, you will be shown ways to combine ELA and History standards to design multimedia projects for your students. The projects and activities will allow students to practice higher level thinking skills and strategies because more time to learn will be freed up once lectures become at-home work. Upon completion of this course, you will have a vast amount of engaging activities and projects ready for to use in your classroom that are based on the flipped classroom model. This course can be adapted for any grade level, PK-12.
