1 Hook

I told my students that they were going to change the way that they completed homework.  Traditionally, they would get a paper handout with several written exercises for homework.  The purpose of homework in the traditional model is to practice what you have learned in class.  Using the Flipped Learning Model students get to watch a video at home that is teacher made in which the teacher delivers direct instruction.  Here’s the hook:  Students will watch the video and answer a few questions at the end in a social chat- room like platform called Classroom Salon.  Students will be able to interact with each other and comment on specific points of the video by tagging specifics parts of the video.  In essence, it is a chat-room with a purpose.  Instead of sitting alone (with no teacher guidance) and filling out a practice sheet, students are now going to complete interactive homework.

3 Guided Practice

Activity: Creating

In the classroom, as a warm-up students will complete a small written exercise which would include simple addition and subtraction problems where they would write the answer in Spanish.   Students will practice by calling out the number they see on the PowerPoint as teacher demonstrates.  Finally, students will call out clock times in Spanish as teacher shows different times on manual clock.  Teacher will check for understanding.  

4 Independent Practice

Activity: Presenting

Students will complete a communicative activity where they ask and answer the question, ¿Qué hora es? , using the specific prompt they have on their paper.  Students will complete this in pairs and write their specific answers on the sheet they are given.  Teacher and students will review answers. 

5 Wrap-Up

Activity: Presenting

As a wrap-up students will have the last five-minutes to complete what would normally be assigned for homework.  In this case, students will write 4 short written clock times in Spanish as a type of exit quiz.  As an extension students will add the use of 'de la mañana', 'de la tarde', and 'de la noche' to indicate AM or PM.
