One of the trends in education at the moment is the Flipped Classroom.  From what I understand, students receive key instruction at home via an assigned video or reading and then they come to class ready to interact with the information.  They analyse, respond and create in the classroom not as homework.  If you think about how you did school the teacher gave you the information in class and you went home and did the homework.  A flipped classroom – well, flips that around.

This has made me think about where I put my efforts.

I can help a student

  • receive information
  • understand the information
  • respond to the information

When we do read alouds – we are helping the student receive the information.

When we discuss – we are helping understand the information

When we guide their writing process or end project – we are helping them respond to the information

I’ve never broken it down like that before and yet that has been helpful because the next question I have asked myself is – Where does my student need my help?  The schools who are flipping their instructional processes have decided that their students need most teacher help in understanding and responding.  Is that true for my students?

I think this is a good question for all homeschoolers to ask.  It helps us focus on the individual needs of our kids, and helps us to change as they grow.  Not only will our focus area need to change for each student, but each student will have different needs in different seasons and for different subjects.  Can I be that flexible?  I need to be if I am going to give my children a unique and individual learning experience.
