Well, not officially. But this morning I realized that the hybrid model is very similar to the common schedule of college courses: twice-per-week class meetings, with the expectation of homework to be done before the following week's sessions. Of course, those college class meetings are usually 90 minutes or so, and K-12 teachers will only get about 1/2 as much time. And those in-class sessions will have unusual limitations too, like students must be facing forward and everybody's wearing an uncomfortable facemask.
With less than 6 weeks to go before students "arrive", I'm still wayyyyy behind my usual planning. Partly because my curriculum is fairly well set, and I plan to stick with the same flipping and grading systems. That's the Big 3 -- usually I'm overhauling at least one of those elements. This time. I'm just waiting for the parameters that I will need to live with. Finding that a rough model already exists is somewhat helpful, particularly because I have been a student under those conditions (yeah it was two decades ago, but still!).
Who is this flipping guy?!
