From what I have learned, the Flipped Classroom model is not the sole or exclusive method of instruction. You could easily vary your approach, perhaps incorporating lessons a few times a week, until you have reached a formating schedule that works for you and your students. You can ensure that the videos are being watched by giving an assessment the next day, whether it be a ticket in the door, quiz, test, or homework assignment that you do together in class. I think that parental response is varied and since it is a relatively new concept in our school, more time has to pass before parents become comfortable with the model. If you are considering implementing the Flipped Classroom I suggest that you send home a parent letter or hold an informational session explaining the process.I would love to hear if this works for you!
