Karen Bryer, Technology Curriculum Coordinator for the Groton Public Schools, will lead the discussion of Flip Your Classroom on Tuesday, November 20, at 7 p.m.  This is the third in a series of book discussions for parents and community members featuring titles suggested by Groton educators and sponsored by the Groton Public Schools and Groton Public Library.

Learn what a flipped classroom is and explore how it might work in our schools.  The idea 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 assignments, labs and tests in class with their teacher available.  What Bergmann and Sams found was that their students demonstrated a deeper understanding of the material than ever before. 

A limited number of copies are available to be checked out at the Library.  Attendees with a valid library card will also have the opportunity to borrow a Kindle loaded with the title.  The Kindles were provided by a grant from the Community Foundation of Eastern Connecticut.
