acquiring English as a second language will all benefit from having repeated access to theinformationA flipped classroom allows for class time to be used for more individualized help.For example, in many math classes, the teacher lectures the entire class and then studentsare sent home with problems to do. Because of this, when students go home after a
traditional class, they often have “trouble connecting what they had been taught in class
with what they wer
e supposed to apply at home” (“Flipping the Classroom” 3). Students
who did not understand or who cannot remember the lesson are unable to do the assignedmath problems and may give up. If class lectures are watched at home, the teacher canhelp students individually in class if they are struggling with a certain aspect of thematerial and can work with the entire class on more difficult problem solving. In aflipped classroom, the students have already experienced the material from watching thelecture
s at home and “it frees up more class time for doing hand
-on activities and helping
students work through concepts they do not understand” (Brunsell 1).
Flipping the classroom is also more beneficial for students than a traditionallearning environment because it allows time for more in-depth discussions and learning.Students have more time in class to do hands-on projects and to participate in deeper discussions. The students will learn the material more in depth because they are notsimply being lectured in class and they will be expected to participate. Students also benefit more from flipped classrooms rather than the traditional learning system becausethe students have more time to process the information being taught and to formulatetheir own questions before coming to class.
