DON’T PANIC. Start at the beginning of your chosen curriculum and take it day by day. As a matter of fact, take it hour by hour.

When the kids are tired, let them stop.
The short educational videos of Khan Academy have attracted millions of followers worldwide. Salman Khan, the 36-year-old architect of the Academy, has executed the “flipped classroom” model more successfully than anyone else. It is the idea that students should watch online lectures and work through homework problems on their own at home, at their own pace. Class time once reserved for lectures by teachers would be spent mentoring and one-on-one tutoring. In other words, what was once done in the traditional classroom would be done at home and what was done at home would be done in the class.
Yvonne finds the idea of flipping classrooms at a college level attractive. It will show which students are actually doing the required work (watching lectures at home). Listening to lectures at home actually forces students to take the time to pay attention and go over the material. It gives students the ability to come up with questions to ask the teacher later. When they get to class they can right away ask what they need help with. It also makes the job of the teacher easier.
