Flipped Classrooms

What is a flipped classroom?  Students receive direct instruction outside of the classroom, usually through watching videos and completing short assessments, and then use time in the classroom with the teacher to practice their learning. This allows students opportunities to watch videos multiple times and to ask teachers questions as they need help while practicing their learning. But, it takes careful planning to ensure flipped classrooms improve student learning.
