Students in Karen Strader’s and Ilana Marcus’s algebra II classes at Framingham High don’t do homework, at least not the traditional kind. And that’s something the teachers were excited to tell the School Committee last night. This year Strader, Marcus and several other algebra teachers have implemented a new education approach called “flipping classrooms.” The model essentially flips the traditional classroom setup: students spend their class time doing problems and working on projects, and then review notes and learn new material at home after school. While the method has its drawbacks, Strader said the flipped classroom approach has mostly succeeded by making students take charge of their own learning.
