Snell's Law - The Physics Classroom
In terms of Bloom’s revised taxonomy (2001), this means that students are doing the lower levels of cognitive work (gaining knowledge and comprehension) outside of class, and focusing on the higher forms of cognitive work (application, analysis, synthesis, and/or evaluation) in class, where they have the support of their peers and instructor. This model contrasts from the traditional model in which “first exposure” occurs via lecture in class, with students assimilating knowledge through homework; thus the term “flipped classroom.”
MULTIPLE INTELLIGENCES: STRATEGIES IN THE CLASSROOM
“Flipping the classroom” has become something of a buzzword in the last several years, driven in part by (Fitzpatrick, 2012); (Berrett, 2012); and (Mazur, 2009); In essence, “flipping the classroom” means that students gain first exposure to new material outside of class, usually via reading or lecture videos, and then use class time to do the harder work of assimilating that knowledge, perhaps through problem-solving, discussion, or debates.
Bridging Cultures with Classroom ..
Last but not least, schools must make sure that students understand how their TA intervention connects to their formal learning. Interventions often happen away from the classroom. Since teachers and TAs struggle to find time to collaborate, many students are left to work out how what they have learned with the TA fits into the curriculum. In primary schools, it’s best if teachers align the content of interventions with their lessons, while in secondary schools, department heads should co-ordinate the roles of TAs so teachers can have full control and plan their provision.
