• Effects of flipping the classroom on suburban middle school math students.

      Alswat, Mohammad (2014)
      The purpose of this research is to examine the effects of using the strategy “flipping the classroom" with students. One eighth grade math class was selected to be used from a school in Western New York. The teacher of this classroom taught seven math units using traditional homework and classwork, while four of the units were taught with a flipped classroom. Data was collected through a Likert survey for the students, an interview with the teacher, and the analysis of the students’ grades. Results of the data show that the students generally like the strategy of flipping the classroom. The students also scored 3.11 points higher on average on their tests with a flipped classroom. The teacher also said mostly positive comments about this strategy. She and her students were more comfortable using it in the classroom because their class time was more productive for them. Some suggestions for future research and limitations are discussed in this paper to provide evidence that flipping the classroom can be an effective strategy in certain classes.
    • Flipping the classroom.

      Clark, Erin E. (2014)
      The purpose of this curriculum project is to design resources for a “Flipped Classroom” for four units of American history covering the Civil War through World War I in the eighth grade New York State social studies curriculum. The literature surrounding the important topic of technology integration in classroom illustrates the need for more engaging, interactive lessons for students today. Using the theoretical framework of Understanding by Design (UBD) developed by McTighe and Wiggins, technology will be implemented in accordance with the New York State social studies curriculum while using the flipped classroom technology.
    • Using Non-Print Multi-Media Texts with Literature Circles.

      Sievert, Denise (12/11/2013)
      Common core standards require students to be taught with evidence based practices. This thesis and design of a professional development workshop will include the evidence based research that describes how the instructional practice of Literature Circles combined with non-print texts can be used to help students improve their comprehension skills. The thesis will also describe how Literature Circles can prepare learners for literacy tasks of the 21st century.
