Class time is flipped at Carbondale Area Junior/Senior High School. In the Advanced Placement calculus class on Wednesday, students questioned their teacher about what they learned the night before. The “flipped classroom” in Carbondale, one of the first in the region, inverts the traditional classroom, empowers students and leads to more independent learning. Nationwide, flipped classrooms are becoming more popular as student success grows. In Carbondale, Principal Joseph Farrell first had the idea when he went to an integrated learning conference. Administrators spent the spring thinking of how it could work, and over the summer, Lewis did more research and preparation.
