- Visitors would not see me acting as a "sage on the stage" history teacher. (related Grant Wiggins post)
- Students are never "done" with all in-class activities, so you don't see idle hands in a devil's playground. There might be 1 or 2 completeable tasks, but the last one is always open-ended.
- "I thought I gave you my homework" and similar excuses would not be heard in my classroom. I use Schoology, but any LMS can streamline your video / assessment / project routines and procedures.
- Parents and support staff do not email, call, or drop-in to ask what's on the next quiz, or how to do a homework assignment. Never! Not once in the past 2 1/2 years so far.
- Students do not fail quizzes, because I'm teaching for mastery. They might not pass the first time, but at some point in the next few days they revisit the problem areas and everyone will pass that quiz (with very few stubborn or circumstantial exceptions).
Fellow flippers: do you agree? Did I also describe your flipping classroom? Is something missing from the list?
