Full Description

Flipping library and classroom lessons gives librarians and techers opportunities to support student needs outside of a traditional lecture-based experience.  Flipped libraries and classrooms are active environments in which students and teachers work together during class time and traditional lectures and instruction are moved into a homework environment.  In this workshop, you'll learn what the flipped classroom is all about and how in the next school year you can start flipping some of your lessons and support teachers who want to flip their classrooms.

Due to space limitations, this workshop is open only to school librarians in New York City and Westchester county.  Please include your Oganization/School Name when you register.
