Since I started flipping my world history class this year, many educators have asked questions about the model and its implementation.

Flipping History Q & A

Chase Moore (@moore2cw), a fellow world history teacher interested in the flipped model, recently posed the following questions. He had recently read my post about the flipped mastery model in our history class (which has since changed a bit, more below). I thought posting this brief conversation could further the discussion online with others interested in the ways that the flipped model can be applied to the social studies classroom.

“How do you develop your Standards?” After a few units of flipping, I started applying a standards-based-grading approach. I have since changed the terminology to “learning goals,” since this resonates with the students more than “standards.” For example, one learning goal will be from Standard 1: Content Knowledge. Here is a link to the document I provided the students: Learning Goals I break each unit into three topics. Goal of Flipped Class Videos: Content Delivery or Skill Development? It recently occurred to me that since I began flipping my world history course in January, each of my screencast lectures have had one overarching goal: content delivery.

Goal of Flipped Class Videos: Content Delivery or Skill Development?

This has proven tremendously useful and the early results, considering both assessment scores and student feedback, are encouraging. Transitioning some of my direct instruction (content delivery through lecture) to video has helped students understand some of the major events and themes from world history, but I realized what I should shift my focus towards: building social studies skills! Since most of our class time is now spent working on such skills, I now have a better understanding of their ability to engage in such learning experiences. In sum, I overestimated many of their abilities. For example, we recently worked on evaluating the historical significance of cold war events. Then, it dawned on me. We also realized that there were several other benefits to creating skills based screencasts… Flipped-History. Creating Assessments. Video organization using Google Spreadsheets and Sites.
