Flipping the Classroom: Unit 6 Part 1 - The Era of Good Feelings and Nationalism

What is the flipped classroom?

It’s called “the flipped classroom.” While there is no one model, the core idea is to flip the common instructional approach: With teacher-created videos and interactive lessons, instruction that used to occur in class is now accessed at home, in advance of class. Class becomes the place to work through problems, advance concepts, and engage in collaborative learning. Most importantly, all aspects of instruction can be rethought to best maximize the scarcest learning resource—time.  This is my goal for the first part of Unit 6.  We'll see how things go.  From there, this may be adopted as one of our instructional strategies to help learners (yes, you the students) in preparing for APUSH class, and the APUSH exam in May.

Unit 6, Part 1 – Era of Good Feelings and Nationalism

Use these resources to prepare for class.  The class will be spent analyzing and evaluating this era.

To test your preparedness for class, take the online quiz, and email results to Mr. Pagliaro (At the bottom of the quiz, the "button" on the left is to submit your quiz, the "button" on the right is to start over)
