Growth and reflection in flipped classrooms is outlined thoroughly by our expert instructors in this chapter. Just a few of the interesting subjects covered here include the use of reflection questions, Marzano's teacher evaluation model and Danielson's framework for teaching. We've ensured you can access these tools 24 hours a day on your computer and mobile device while you work at your own pace. Assess your understanding using the multiple-choice quizzes you'll find along with each lesson.
How It Helps
- Explains theory: With both Marzano's teacher evaluation model and Danielson's framework for teaching explained clearly here, you'll have a variety of ways to evaluate flipped lessons in your classroom.
- Encourages collaboration: You'll study collaborative tools not only for your students to use but that you as a teacher can benefit from as well.
- Provides context: In these lessons, we've provided examples of reflection questions and how different models specifically apply to flipped lessons so you can see these concepts in action.
This chapter should prepare you to:
- Define reflection questions and provide examples
- Describe collaborative tools that encourage student reflection
- Collaborate with other teachers to encourage reflection
- Outline the purpose and process of teacher evaluations
- Explain Marzano's teacher evaluation model
- Apply Marzano's model to assess and reflect on flipped lessons
- Discuss Danielson's framework for teaching
- Reflect on flipped lessons using Danielson's model
1. Reflection Questions: Definition and Examples
Reflecting on learning is one of the best ways to consolidate skills and knowledge that a student has acquired. In this lesson, you will learn what makes a good reflection question, and you will see some examples of how a reflection question might look.
2. Collaborative Tools for Student Reflection
The objective of this lesson is to identify digital tools that are used to promote collaboration, as well as student reflection, thinking, planning, and creativity in a flipped classroom environment.
3. Collaboration as a Reflective Practice for Teachers
Have you ever felt isolated as a teacher and thought about collaboration? In this lesson, we will discuss some different forms of collaborative, reflective professional development for educators that allow teachers to learn from one another and view their own instructional practices in a more objective way.
4. Improving Performance Through Teacher Evaluations
In this lesson, we will discuss the purpose, processes involved, and uses of teacher evaluations. We will also discuss how these evaluations can help with the student learning process.
5. Marzano's Teacher Evaluation Model
In this lesson, learn how Dr. Robert Marzano's teacher evaluation model enables teachers to identify their strengths and areas of growth so that they can become the best educators for their students.
6. Using Marzano's Model to Reflect on Flipped Lessons
Marzano's teacher evaluation model uses four domains. This lesson will focus on two of them in a flipped and BYOD (bring your own device) classroom setting to assist in student learning and achievement.
7. What is Danielson's Framework for Teaching?
Evaluating teachers to enhance student success is a complex process. Danielson's Framework of Teaching was developed to provide a foundation. In this lesson, we'll define Danielson's Framework for Teaching (FFT). You'll learn who developed the concept and its purpose.
8. Using Danielson's Model to Reflect on Flipped Lessons
Danielson's teacher evaluation model contains four components. For this lesson we will focus on the Planning & Preparation and Instruction components. Continue reading to learn how to connect the evaluation model with a flipped lesson that involves a problem-based approach in a one-to-one computing environment.
