Flipping the Classroom

What Every ESL Teacher Should Know
Robyn Brinks Lockwood


“I realized that [flipping] was not going to be a passing fad or a catchphrase we would hear about for a while before it faded away and was replaced with another . . . . Regardless of when, where, or how you flip, this approach seems here to stay [because] the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.” -- Robyn Brinks Lockwood

This e-single provides a brief but helpful introduction to ESL/EFL teachers who want to better understand the educational phenomenon of flipping and implement it into their classrooms.
In this short ebook, Lockwood, author of Flip It! Strategies for the ESL Classroom, answers some of the most frequently asked questions about why and how to flip and dispels some of the common myths about flipping (e.g., “Flipped classrooms don’t use textbooks” and “Flipping requires me to make videos of myself”). She discusses the benefits of flipping for teachers and students and also talks about lessons she’s learned from her experience flipping her ESL classrooms.

The text is organized through a set of questions (or myths) related to flipping the classroom. The questions this ebook answers are:
  • What is flipping?
  • What about my textbooks?
  • What about technology?
  • What about class time?
  • Do I have to do it that way?
  • What's in it for me?
