What's a flipped classroom?
Although not as labour intensive as it originally sounds, a flipped classroom is one where your students use their time in school to practice and develop the skills and content that they have already explored, rather than focussing mostly on receiving new content. Some examples include...
  • Pre-reading, with discussions in class.
  • Completing assignments at home, and holding class debates and peer-marking work in school.
  • Watching pre-produced content from the class teacher, to then translate it into written tasks with support

Slide 2 - Video

I have assigned this group of students a consolidation video (made by the teacher) of the key theme. The students can watch this video and complete notes from the consolidation and their own understanding on the topic. By combining the video with their own pre-reading, they should be able to produce a convincing argument that their theme is 'most important' in relation to the subject.

I have assigned you one of the key themes from Macbeth: 
consolidate notes on why this may be the 'most important' theme. 
We will be discussing this on Thursday, in groups.

Slide 3 - Open question

When the students have consolidated their notes, using the abundant resources I have provided for them, not only will they build confidence in their own understanding (which they have been trusted to compound at their own pace) but they also open other peers up to consider new ideas and points of view on the subject matter, with minimal teacher input thus far.

Slide 5 - Mind map

For their homework assignment, I will ask them to collate the concepts they found most convincing from the lesson, by sharing the work completed in class (such as a mind-map) and asking them to organise them into a quadrant map that I have provided. I can then check their understanding, plan to address any misconceptions as my starter for next lesson and have encouraged them to produce a piece of work that is also an outstanding revision template.


Enkele Amsterdamse vrouwen zagen dat er een schip vol aardappelen in een van de grachten lag. Ze gingen erop af en plunderden het schip: hun schorten vol aardappelen. De dag erna waren er meer plunderaars. Pas nadat zes mensen door het leger werden doodgeschoten, keerde de rust terug
