Flipping For U.S. History

My students need tablets to participate in a classroom "flip." Flipping allows me to reach each learning style at one time while focusing on those who need re-teaching.

My Students

Help us "flip" out! In order to flip a classroom we need technology - and that's exactly what we don't have!

Our school is a "high-poverty" campus and the availability of technology for the general education classes, especially history, doesn't exist.

Most of my students do not own computers at home nor have access to the internet. Technology opens up many doors for students and mine deserve that opportunity.

My Project

I am attempting to "flip" my classroom this year. A normal class period will include a small lecture over the day's material. Students will then be broken into groups based on understanding and mastery of the information. Groups will rotate between time with the tablets and working with me. Time with the tablets will include videos, short stories, primary source research, and web-quests over the material discussed. Students will also have the opportunity to take online assessments that will allow real-time data to be provided on their mastery level.

Where you live should not determine your success.

For many of my students, having the opportunity to work with technology and learn in different ways will allow them to live-out this belief. Eighth grade U.S. History is an important year and subject in Texas. Mastering the material can make the difference between graduating from high school and falling through the cracks. These tablets will help my students to believe in themselves, and help to ensure their future success.
