Here I am on an unusually beautiful late February afternoon grading papers. I have finished grading the multiple choice section of the test and putting the grades in my gradebook. I wanted to share my data with you.
I had some individual successes as well. I had some student's test scores jump by ten to twelve points. These students are typically the quieter, more reserved students who I think got more information in the small groups.
However, I had two students drop by thirty (YIKES!) points. One is a social butterfly and I have a feeling was not on task like they should have been. The other student is not as self-confident as I would like and does not ask for help even though I ask if everything is okay.
I am overall satisfied with my first flip. I think, in the long run, students will get more out of this type of classroom. I finished my lessons last night and will be diving the group into a different groups for their Renaissance chapter. The two major changes I have this chapter are no group project and students will listen to the notes in a station in the classroom.
On to the Renaissance!
