About “The Book”

This book tackles in-class flip thoroughly being the first book of its kind. The book explains what in-class flip is and how it differs from traditional flipped learning. The book contains 13 chapters that walk teachers through the many possibilities to conduct an in-class flip across settings, providing detail for teachers to implement it successfully and from scratch. We lay out the theory behind flipped learning and construct our own definition of In-class Flip, including comparisons with other authors’ conceptions of this approach. The book was written by two language and teacher educators, but to fill the gaps of content and context the authors might have, fifteen educators around the globe and in multiple fields were interviewed and their stories provide a wider scope. We also explain how differentiation plays an important role in the use of in-class flip. This is a practical book with many real-life examples (images, videos, lesson plan formats), a step-by-step planning guide, and information about online learning, gamification and other methodologies that in-class flip supports. Throughout the different pages, educators will encounter a myriad of ideas they can take into their classes as soon as they pick up this book.
