Would You Like To Observe How We Conduct Flipped Classroom?

We have received queries from teachers on how we carry out flipped classroom when teaching students our writing strategy. As such, we have decided to allow teachers to observe our flipped classroom lesson online via padlet.

In this lesson we are teaching a class of 11 Sec 3 Express students our narrative writing strategy. The lesson is on-going for the next few weeks. In these past four lessons, we have taught our student how to identify the question expectation and how to write their two-part story based on a theme they have chosen.

We challenge students to think of two-related themes for their story plot and we are amazed at what they have done. In the padlet you will find at this moment raw students 2-part stories that need polishing up after our feedback during class yesterday. The students are expected improve their 2-part stories based on our feedback by this Monday.Then after we will proceed with teaching students how to write the introductory section of the narrative essay.

If you are keen to see what happens in our flipped classroom lesson online and how our students progress in their learning, you can visit this padlet page from time to time. Do sms me or drop me an email for the link to the padlet page. We will be happy to share it with you. We hope that you will benefit from our sharing and a have your very own successful flipped classroom lesson too.

Synopsis:

This video is about a school girl who experiences psychosis (indicated by delusion and hallucination) because of sustained drug abuse. As a result, she broke into a different reality bubble and is oblivious of what is going on around her. The video intends to hit hard on what matters most to student audience – their intellect. The message we intend to drive hard to them is that drug abuse will screw up their brains and makes them crazy.

Synopsis:

This video is a social media news clip that purports a report of CCTV footage that went viral about two first time young drug abusers who were caught when they took cannabis for the first time. The video raises awareness the perception that cannabis is safe because more countries legalise cannabis is a fallacy. It also highlights the harmful effects of cannabis to deter our youth today from drug abuse. 

Synopsis:

This video highlights the confession of a school girl named Jolie who struggled to rid herself of drug abuse. Interestingly, the video offers both negative and positive outcomes that hinge on how Jolie responded to her pressing circumstances to underscore a central message for school-going audience: Stay away from drug abuse, but if you are already caught in it, seek help and do not fight it alone. The video also presents a quick statistics at the end to alert the audience on the upward three-year trend in the number of students caught for drug offences. This is done so that they will become more concern of drug offences among students that they will ensure themselves and their peers to stay away from drug abuse.
