This is the technique whereby students review lesson material in advance of a class, freeing up time in the class for more student-led activities. In effect, the homework is the lesson material and what was previously done as homework is now completed in the class. I have heard about flipped classrooms and have previously conducted some basic research around the area and I’ve wondered whether I could implement something similar. However, I didn’t want to make any significant changes to my teaching without first considering the implications
The concern that I have identified related to the low enthusiasm for, specifically, Religious Education (RE) and the minimal use of valuable media resources that could prove to be a stimuli for fun, inspirational and creative RE lessons. However, this concern was two fold-as I was trying to find ways of implementing money saving extra curricular applications for our department at the Northampton School for Boys (NSB).
