Abstract

The research question addressed in this project was, in what ways can flipped learning help to meet the needs of students of high academic ability in the sixth grade math classroom? It documents one teacher's use of flipped learning, the brainchild of Bergmann and Sams (2010, 2011, 2012), in conjunction with best practice strategies to differentiate for high achieving sixth grade math students. Strategies used included preassessments, learning contracts, curriculum compacting, Most Difficult First, and anchor activities. The author documents home and classroom routines for students in a flipped classroom and discusses advantages and disadvantages to flipped learning. Ultimately, she concludes that, while there remains room for improvement, flipped learning is an effective strategy for meeting the needs of students of high academic ability.
