AN INQUIRY INTO FLIPPED LEARNING IN FOURTH GRADE MATH INSTRUCTION

Teresa D’addato, Libbi R. Miller

Abstract


The objective of this action research project was to better understand the impact of flipped learning on fourth grade math students in a socioeconomically disadvantaged setting. A flipped instructional model was implemented with the group of students enrolled in the researcher’s class. Data was collected in the form of classroom observations, teacher reflections and surveys from both parents and students. Findings indicated that a flipped learning methodology shifted the role of the teacher to that of a classroom facilitator. Flipped learning also created an engaging instructional environment, which afforded students the opportunity to experience a greater sense a responsibility over their learning process. While parents responded to flipped learning in mixed ways, they overall reported positive changes in their children as a result of the shift in instructional methods. Conclusions and implications for practice are discussed.
