In 2010, Clintondale High School in Clinton, Michigan, was one of the lowest ranked schools in the state. Principal Greg Green knew he needed to try something drastic to get his students back on track. But what? More tests? More lecture time?
Nope! The answer, Principal Green found, was just to do things a little backwards! The entire school has now adopted the “flipped classroom” model, which requires students to watch lessons online at home and complete homework during the school day when they can receive help from their teachers.
According to Green, the results have been staggering.
