6-Week Group Flipped Class
ESL group classes are a great way to boost your confidence, learn English and connect with others. Collaboration in a group class has been shown to contribute to student learning and success. Students practice real-life conversations with their classmates, share diverse perspectives, and develop stronger communication skills overall.
These groups meet online for 6 weeks and are organized by level.
English as a second language sessions utilize an interactive digital lesson platform called Off2Class. There is a focus on listening and conversational speaking, but lessons also integrate grammar, reading and writing skills. Materials may additionally include videos, audio clips, worksheets and newspapers/magazines.
Students log into my Off2Class lesson platform at the scheduled time from your own computer. Using video conferencing to connect, you see and hear me and your classmates. There are no books required to purchase.
What is a flipped class?
A flipped classroom is a learning model that is a bit different than a traditional classroom. In a flipped class, students work independently on most assignments. This requires students to be self-motivated and manage their time wisely.
Here are the steps of a flipped class. First, I email students material and assignments once a week. Throughout the week, students follow my outlined lesson and complete the work on their own during the time that is best for them. These lessons could include slides from the Off2Class curriculum, videos from YouTube or ones that I create, as well as assignments from other worksheets or websites.
Next, the class meets online with me. These meetings take place once a week for about one hour. During this meeting, we will practice the new grammar skills, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc. Students will have an opportunity to ask questions and interact with their peers.
The final step is for students to complete homework to show an understanding of what they learned. The homework assignments might be online with Off2Class, and it could include a writing or speaking activity.
Students who complete all assignments on time and participate during the online meetings will benefit most from this class.
