CONTRIBUTED BY WHITNEY DILBERT –
On Wednesday, September 28, 2017 EAST students, Grayson Fairless, Whitney Dilbert, and Cadence Barnes, taught sixth and eighth graders about Veterans. All three of the girls prepared lessons and activities for the classes. The presentations included information on major wars, including the number of casualties. The sixth graders enjoyed being taught by the girls. And the eighth graders found it interesting to be taught by one of their peers. This is a flipped classroom concept of teaching.
A flipped classroom is a new teaching method that takes the traditional classroom and completely reverses it. The teacher is still there for guidance and to help answer questions, but the students teach each other.
