– Terra Graves –
Dan Jones recently introduced us to The 3.0 Exchange. Check it out here if you missed it. This project has just opened for access to the Flipped Learning (FL) community. The Exchange is akin to Teachers Pay Teachers but solely dedicated to Flipped Learning. There is nowhere else you will find ready-to-go lessons that are aligned to the Global Elements of Effective Flipped Learning. Nowhere else will you find high-quality, peer-reviewed, FL resources created by FL Level I and Level II certified educators.
This month I start reviewing the resources on the 3.0 Exchange in my new FLR column. As the number of resources grows, you may not have the time to look through all of them to find what you need. This column will introduce you to some of the best resources that can help you reduce your planning time, improve your flipped lessons, and take back your weekends.
This month, I spotlight two resources from Certified Resources Providers, Dan Jones (K-12) and Tom Mennella (Higher Ed).
K-12 Resource of the Month
Resource Title and Exchange Link: Research Project Folder Top Secret
Grade Level: 4th and up
Subject | Topic: History/Researching the Validity of Claims
Certified Resource Provider: Dan Jones
Review: This is a really fun idea for group space! Researching the validity of a claim can be a pretty boring topic, but this detective folder will engage students immediately! While this was created for a history class, a clever teacher can modify this idea to fit any sort of inquiry-based lesson or project. Dan has included a video tutorial with this resource, so you just have to print out the materials, get a few supplies and press play! “Mission Possible!”

Higher Ed Resource of the Month
Resource Title and Exchange Link: Genetics Challenge Questions PowerPoint
Grade Level: College Sophomore
Subject | Topic: Genetics
Certified Resource Provider: Dr. Tom Mennella
Review: This ready-to-go slide deck will save you so much time! If you’ve wanted to bring more critical thinking activities into your Genetics classroom, you will want to get this. Dr. Tom has created an ENTIRE SEMESTER’s worth of questions that will springboard student discussions. Your group space just got more engaging!
