Teaching Interpretation: Individual Instruction and Independent Students

flippedlearning-12-30

In their classrooms, Dana Johansen and Sonja Cherry-Paul use flipped lessons to create a kind of "controlled chaos" learning environment. The classroom is more productive, more energetic, when students have the chance to explore their independence and, according to Sonja, "move in the direction he or she needs to move in."

 In today's video, the coauthors of Teaching Interpretation discuss how they've evolved their classrooms.
