Lesson plans

Each of these lesson plans follows a flipped-classroom strategy.

The first materials you find are the preparation materials, which would traditionally be the more passive, lecture component of the class. These are the materials that my students work with before we get together

Next, you'll find 2-4 prep questions. It really DOES matter that you write out your answers. Your brain processes ideas differently when you have to choose the words to express them. Take a few minutes to write 4-6 sentences for each question.

The next section is what we would be doing in a 2-hour class period, where we have a chance to work together. This time is especially valuable because you can really apply the concepts you learned, while getting perspective and support from your classmates. The worksheet represents 2 hours of work in groups of 3.

I'm including summary videos that I made for my online students. They can give you a sense of some of the ideas from the worksheet and an overall view of the ideas from that lesson.

Finally, I'll add a final list of resources and links that I had to cut to make the class materials manageable. But if the ideas in the lesson left you wanting more, these are great sources to look into
