Flipping your instruction can be a lifesaver in the art room. Traditional and TAB classrooms alike can benefit from using flipped classroom strategies in a multitude of ways. Not only will you have a digital record of your lesson plans, but flipping can help free up prep time, making those repetitive, mundane demonstrations (like how to wash a paintbrush) feel less draining. Flipping can also help you build a library of techniques and methods for students to access whenever they may need them. Perhaps more importantly, using flipped lessons can relieve the strain on your voice.
With all the benefits of creating flipped demos and lesson plans, the temptation to get started on flipping your instruction is hard to ignore. There are, however, many aspects to flipping that you’ll want to be prepared for before you dig in.
