      The purpose of this project was to provide educators an alternative method to the traditional method of teaching content courses. Many areas of content are taught through the instructional method of lecture style where students are passive learner instead of active learners. This curriculum project was to address the change to active learning and the need to improve content course learning for English Language Learners (ELLs). As technology becomes a vital part of the classroom, teachers are in need to find effective ways to implement it. One effective way that would improve content learning education for ELLs is through the flipped learning or flipped classroom. Research has shown that flipped classrooms can impact student achievement, student learning outcome, student motivation, and teacher preparation. Flipping the classroom allows for educators to change the environment of the classroom to become more interactive and also suit each individual needs more. This curriculum project created videos and material for flipped classroom on the American Colonies unit, is to provide an active learning environment for teachers to use towards developing their flipped classroom.
