It started with a simple observation: students need their teachers present to answer questions or to provide help if they get stuck on an assignment they don't need their teachers present to listen to a lecture or review content. From there, Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams began the flipped classroom-students watched recorded lectures for homework and completed their assi ...more

I think what I appreciated about this book was Sams's and Bergmann's honesty. They're very open about the fact this worked FOR THEM. They explain HOW it worked, and WHY...they're in a unique situation of being able to team teach both classes they flipped and it had to be a huge advantage to work together.

They explained the tech stuff that made their classrooms successful, and I could see how that would work. They answered questions, especially mine about what to do for kids who don't have techno

This is an account of how two teachers in Colorado more or less created the flipped classroom model without necessarily setting out to revolutionize teaching. It is a good introduction to what flipped teaching is and how it can be implemented. My only regret is that I would have appreciated more concrete examples from other subjects and age groups, or even more concrete examples from their own experience. However, these two teachers are certainly to be admired for sharing what they have done in ...more
I think I may try this technique with one of my courses. Interesting read, will do a little more research on the topic prior to jumping in.
I read this book on my Kindle, and found myself wanting to highlight almost everything.

The authors are honest and practical. In a lot of educational texts, the authors seem to exist in a magical fairy-land where they have no rules or administrative edicts to follow, and/or they preach that this is THE ONLY WAY TO BE A GOOD TEACHER - Like they're Moses and their books are the freakin' stone tablets.

One of my favourite lines from the book is "Best practice so far", and the acknowledgment that the
While written for grade and high schools, it taught a lot about how to do this and it helped me see that it will work in some classes such as Hebrew, but not for others such as Intro except possibly as an occasional piece. I am also considering this for the exegetical skills course.

A fellow teacher on the AP Chemistry Community message board recommended this book at one point last school year. Later in the school year an administrator asked me if I would be willing to experiment with flipping a classroom and then possibly inspire other teachers in our district to do the same in the future. I told him that I was willing to if I could be supported with some resources, which he agreed to. I asked him almost immediately if they would purchase this book for me and he agreed to ...more
Bergmann and Sams were my inspiration when I first moved to student-paced learning in math. This book is spot-on with the challenges and the rewards. Anyone interested in what the flipped classroom is all about and how it relates to fully differentiating instruction will be glad of the couple hours invested in reading this little gem.

Recommends it for: anyone interested in the flipped class model
A very easy read that clearly explained the authors' version of a flipped classroom and a flipped mastery classroom; they clearly spell out what worked and what didn't. The authors also didn't sugar coat that this is a lot of work to set up and requires constant maintenance/revision.
This is a quick read and packed with lots of information. I really learned quite a bit and think it's not only a primer on what a flipped instructional strategy looks like, but also the kinds of decision-making that has to accompany the decision to try this style out.
A few years from now this will be an incredible model for teachers at school. This year I will slowly take the first step to model with staff virtual staff meetings how we can begin to step into this world.
By now, most everyone has heard the term "flipped classroom" but not everyone understands what that means. This short informative book provides background, definitions, and examples. I appreciate the authors' candor in saying that this worked for them (they team teach their classes). They do not come across as educational experts whose format is the only one that will work. Rather, they encourage educators to find what works for them, and they are honest in admitting that this approach takes lot ...more

I heard Jonathan Bergmann in person last week, and I had no idea what I was in for. I had only a vague knowledge about the flipped classroom idea and what it entailed. It sounded kind of intriguing and one teacher at my school had been practicing it. Little did I know that I was about to hear about it from the mouth of one of the originators. Mr. Bergmann laid out his case for flipping the classroom very elegantly and said one of the most poignant things I've heard at a professional development ...more
Read this because I wondered what a "flipped classroom" was/is. The authors are two high school chemistry teachers, and I think their model would work well in similar circumstances--high school and middle school. (I had hoped to find information about using this concept with elementary-age children, but I didn't. The authors did state that their model combines elements of learning centers, which are used more in younger grades.) I did like the info about their hybrid system of grading, blending ...more

It's a straightforward book. It explains the authors' experience with flipped classroom and their improvement into applying the flipped-mastery classroom. I enjoyed the admission of possible difficulties and they provided some solutions.

Mark Brown
This book is an easy read, full of explanations, suggestions, and cautions for those of us thinking of flipping our classes. I've been dabbling for a year. I have a lot of ideas as a result of reading this book. Now, I'm even more inspired.

I really like the authors' self-deprecating, honest treatment of their work.

Technology has had an influence on so many of us. Tablets and smartphones are everywhere. I think the flipping movement is an important shift in the way we work with our students. Now

The ideas are flowing! I'm flipping out!
As an introduction to this concept, this book is perfect!

I could only wish for a bit more perspective from the language arts teachers out there...
I'm getting ready to run a very interesting experiment next year. Teach two sections of principles of economics, one taught in a regular way (chalk and talk) and one taught using the flipped classroom approach. Which one will work the best in terms of student learning??? This short book by Bergman and Sams gives a great overview of the flipped or inverted classroom, its benefits and challenges. Basically, the flip is that what we usually do in class (lecture, transmit information) will be given ...more
Great concept for higher level learning! I don't see this working for my freshmen English class, but it would be a great tool for math and science.
I read this book at the request of my principal, as I will be piloting some flipped classroom elements this year in grade 4 math. I found this book to be a nice, concise introduction to the flipped classroom method, and to some of the more basic questions that teachers might have as they begin their own flipped classroom trials. However, the entire book only talked about the flipped classroom from the perspective of high school students and educators. I would have loved to see more sections and ...more
Much of this seems so blindingly logical but needs to be said. Even without having implemented anything (yet) I feel like this book has improved my teaching practice.
Great easy quick read that is very practical and full of ideas of how to implement it in the classroom

Great short read on the "whys" and general overview of the flipping movement.

Great book helped a lot with starting to do flipped classroom in my room.

This is a great book to get background information on how flipped learning came about and how to start incorporating it into your classroom. I have had the pleasure of attending two flipped learning seminars for professional development given by Bergmann and he also came into my classroom, observed a lesson, and gave me pointers. My students are responding positively to flipped learning, and I have just skimmed the surface of this new way of teaching! Definitely read this book AND try to attend ...more
Good book explaining the process and implementation for Sams and Bergmann's flipping pedagogy. I'm already a flipper and found myself agreeing with most of what they say and getting some new ideas for the next time I flip my class. They explain that they wrote the book to be reader-friendly and able to be read in a short period of time. It's a little light on the data (i.e.-assessment of student learning), but great for ideas. It's definitely worth a read for those looking to do less lecturing i ...more
Finished this book today and I "celebrated" by creating a flip lesson with the Explain Everything App. It is a little rough, but I learned loads. Anyone interested in Flipping their lessons should read this.
I really liked the ideas presented in this book. It gave me a fresh look on how to run a classroom that I hadn't heard of before. I thought it was very intriguing. Maybe one of these days I will actually have to try one of the many versions of the flipped classroom that they presented in this book in my own classroom. I really like the idea of helping students with their homework in class as a mentor-like status.

Extremely practical book from two chemistry teachers on how they flipped their classrooms and also introduced a mastery learning element. Definitely the way of the future for classroom teachers!
A very interesting book by some of the early pioneers of the recent Flipped Classroom movement. Well written and full of helpful information. At only about 80 pages of actual text, I wish it had been longer--plenty of room for more tips and examples (and quotes from teachers). Recommended for anyone with an interest in applying their methods to your classroom.

Quick read. Interesting way to teach students and use teacher created or teacher found videos posted online. Fits nicely with use of a Digital LMS. It would take some time to get ALL students on board.
