Redefining Learning Throughout an Entire School
When Greg Green, principal at Clintondale High School, took a big risk by flipping his classrooms (as his test scores were dropping and disciplinary rates were on the rise), it paid off. In just one year, the failure rate at their 9th grade center reduced by 33 percent in English, 31 percent in Math, 22 percent in Science, and 19 percent in Social Studies -- plus the discipline rate dropped by 66 percent!
"I truly believe that this model has the potential to redefine how we deliver learning and education," Greg said. "I believe it provides an engaging and interactive way for teachers to facilitate learning, rather than delivering content through lectures. This in turn gives students the opportunity to process the content in class, together, as a group!"
"They can ask questions, they are more engaged in learning, they are less frustrated, and I’ve seen massive improvements in grades. I lay awake at night feeling like I have found a way to fix some of the huge problems we face in our education system. Now I just need to tell everyone who will listen.”
