Instructional Materials & How-Tos
When I began the process of flipping my classroom I spent a lot of time thinking about how I could help my students engage with math content at home in ways that did not look or feel like "traditional" homework. According to a homework survey I gave students, 31% were not attempting homework at all. In order to ensure they were prepared for the rigor of their future math classes, I knew that I needed to address this problem immediately.
When asked why they were not doing homework, students responded that they did not remember how to do certain skills by the time they got home and that they did not find the current homework helpful. Creating video based math tutorials that my students would engage with at home, in place of more traditional worksheets, was a way for me to address both of these concerns.
Seeing material at home and being able to re-watch, slow down, rewind and pause instruction was a powerful change for my students who needed more time to process material. Here I will show you the tools that I used to create this tutorial videos.
