Teach On A Mission™
Flipped Classroom Formula ™
The Complete A-Z Project Implementation Plan for Confidently Creating Your Thriving Flipped Classroom.
Flipped Classroom Formula™ is the only comprehensive program of its kind that helps you build and implement your flipped classroom without the stress of doing it alone, the hours of Googling and Pinterest-ing just to wonder if you’re doing it right, and the worry that all this hard work will result in nothing for your students.
Before I Tell You All About This Life- and Classroom-Changing Program, Let’s Talk About Who This Is Really For…
You’re an educator who has taught in the 2020-2021 school year, who knows that teaching is MORE than feeling the pain of black Zoom boxes or empty assignments in Google Classroom, and are looking to build a classroom environment that puts your students’ learning, engagement and accountability at the center while you take on the role of guide-on-the-side.
An elementary teacher looking to empower your students with accessible instructions for the centers in your rooms, or through content-videos they can watch and rewatch as they need in mastering the hard parts of learning.
A middle, high school or postsecondary teacher looking to make your content delivery or lecture more accessible to students so that they can a) do the messy parts of learning inside your classroom and maybe get to the more engagement parts of your course for once, and b) be empowered to own their learning and stay on top of it even when they (or you) are absent or access your classroom remotely or need to catch up or get ahead (hello differentiation).
An educator who is exhausted by working so dagone hard day in and day out while you’re students just sit-and-get the material, and are ready to have a student-centered classroom where they think and use their brain on the content more than you do without sacrificing your evenings and weekends to make this all happen.
You’re in the right place and I’m going to tell you exactly how Flipped Classroom Formula™ will give you the tools, inspiration, and unparalleled support on your journey to building and implementing a flipped classroom.
I've taken everything I've learned from building multiple thriving flipped classrooms over ten years of teaching and helping hundreds of teachers do the same, and channeled it into a comprehensive, step-by-step implementation program that not only teaches you the strategy behind flipping, but the actual implementation of doing it well the FIRST TIME.
By the end of this program,
you will have:
Developed an iron-clad student-flow for your flipped classroom, ultimately setting it and your students up for success when the going gets tough throughout the school year.
Planned your ENTIRE YEAR for the course you plan to flip - yep, that’s right. You’ll know your exact pacing and how to stick to it during the school year.
Expertly recorded and published at least your first two units of flipped videos (possibly more depending on how many you’ll be reusing from this year), even if video creation is not your strong-suit.
Thoughtfully aligned all topics of your course so that you’re able to hit the ground running when it’s time to make flipped videos.
Intentionally considered all potential obstacles to your flipped classroom so that nothing will stand in the way of your students’ success and your sustainability when it comes to delivering and mastering the content.
Proactively prepared your future students and parents for the idea of the flipped classroom so all parties involved feel assured of the technique and your expertise in all things learning within your classroom.
“I decided to flip my class so that I could give my students the opportunity to apply what we do in class to the best of their ability as well as holding students accountable. I also wanted to be able to spend as much time as possible with my baby boy, and flipping allowed me to do that. Mandy has helped me put strategies in place to accomplish all of these goals.”
So if you’re ready to finally flip your classroom while avoiding the overwhelm and uncertainty of doing it on your own…
Here's how I'll help you get there:
Flipping Prerequisites - Laying the Foundation for a Flipped Classroom
No big project, and no worthwhile course for that matter, can happen without a solid foundation, and that's what you'll be creating in this module - a foundation you can build off of and fall back on the rest of the school year.
This is work that will set you up for the ENTIRE school year that will allow you to stick to your calendar and have a great guide to get you through those difficult months.

Flipped Video Creation Prerequisites
Now that you've got your foundation built, we'll be in another planning module here, but now you'll be even closer to the actually flipping. In this module, you'll make some significant decisions about your videos, your recording process, and where you'll house your videos so that in the next module, all you have to do is record.
You'll get slightly technical in this module, but in all the good ways because you'll be learning skills that will impact your classroom beyond flipping. You will plan and make decisions around topics like:
WebCam or No WebCam? And Setting Up to Record
Choosing and LEARNing Your Video Creation Tool
Plan Your Summer, Plan Your Year for Flipping
Building a Home for Student Access of Your Flipped Videos
NEW *BONUS* Personalizing Your Flipped Classroom for ALLL Settings
Now that you have your amazing prep work done, here is where we rev up the coaching and support so that you can DO THE WORK.
I talk you through any worries or fears about the camera, we do all the prep work, and YOU just do it - this is where the magic happens in flipping.
We'll infuse your personality into your videos so that your students feel the same connection with you they would have if they were in your classroom.

Module 04 Student Flipped Content Creation
Only half the battle of flipping is making the videos and setting up where students will access them, and that's what we've already taken care of or at least planned for. The other half is a multitude of things; one of those things being what your students will DO when they are taking notes and the processes around their note taking.
In this module you'll determine the routines your students will have around their note-taking and other procedures of your flipped classroom that will set them up for success.
When? That is the Question
Student Process: During Your Videos
Student Process: After Your Videos
What to do when they DON'T take notes
Data of Your Flipped Classroom
NOW WHAT? ... to do In Class
The question of what to do in class now that you won't be taking all the time to lecture is a daunting one for many flipped teachers. For good reason.
But in this module, I show you why it doesn't have to be daunting and how you've done MUCH of the work already.
Hear from other teachers in this module based on subject as to what they do and love in their flipped classrooms so that you can find some key takeaways for your classroom. You can expect to have AT LEAST your first unit planned from A-Z, but I would bet you could do more than that if you focus and make a good plan from the last module.

Preparing Students and Parents for the Flipped Classroom
Now that you are a total champ at creating your flipped video notes, here is where we wrap it ALL UP and really set your flipped classroom up for success when we take some time to consider where your obstacles will be and how we can proactively combat them.
What happens when a student doesn't take the notes? What do I do with a reluctant, or even angry parent about this new way of teaching that I've built my entire classroom around? These, along with others, are some of the obstacles we will proactively tackle in this module.

A Small Sample of our Amazing Alumni
“I tried to flip my classroom on my own, and I never was satisfied with the process and there was no one to bounce questions off of. Mandy provided solutions to roadblocks that I encountered and didn't know how to fix them. I have read several books, watched videos and even taken an online class, but this class was the best and most informative class I have taken. Mandy provided so much excitement and enthusiasm about the flipped classroom that it rubbed off onto me that kept me going to finish a couple of units. I am almost done with the 1st nine weeks of the semester. FCF has given me the skills, knowledge, confidence and excitement in implementing my flipped classroom for my future students.”
“I feel much more organized and I feel much more relaxed about getting through all the content in my courses because of FCF. I am more excited for school days because I do not have to drudge through the same lecture multiple times in a day. I used to get confused about what class I gave certain examples to, or if I explained a concept to them previously. This year I know they all got the same lecture and examples. I do see how I am doing a bit more work outside of class, but honestly I really don't mind the work because I just think - oh, making this video means I just have to give this lecture ONCE instead of 4x this year, and then lookout next year - I will have videos made AND fun and organized classes.”
"I just wanted to say thank you for a great course (FCF).
I am working hard changing everything I’ve done the last 16 years but it’s making remote teaching work. If I didn’t take your course I wouldn’t feel like I had a roadmap. I’ve been helping other teachers, taking risks, and most important, THANKED by my students. They said they appreciate that I seem to have this down, had a plan! They love the Flipped lecture because they have a hard time keeping up online during live meets.
I’m so grateful. I do feel overwhelmed (Have kids remote learning too and some is just getting used it all remote teaching) but I don’t feel like I’m drowning and can’t do it.
If I didn’t take your course this summer I would have ended up in tears daily."
"I actually signed up for the 3 credit graduate course for your through St. Francis with your Flipped Classroom. Formula. I turned in and already passed! It was easy to submit the work I had already done on my own because of the course. One extra paragraph was all I had to do. Thanks so much for helping make this opportunity happen! 3 credits down, 13 more to go to move to the next step on the pay scale!!!"
"I just wrapped up the 4 hour grad credit course and it was exactly as you described! Credit for the work we already did, plus some great reflection opportunities and discussion!
Thank you for EVERYTHING you taught me and for making this grad credit possible!

TIME! I don't have the time to devote to an online course in addition to trying to flip my classroom.
I already know what it takes to flip a classroom, I just need to sit down and do it.
I am an educator on an educator's salary - I don't have the money to spend on this.

You should give Flipped Classroom Formula™ a 14 day risk-free shot if you’re motivated by any of the following:
You want your life back… like… really badly.
You’ve made it through this unprecedented year with concrete knowledge that… NEVER AGAIN. There’s got to be a way to be effective in the classroom AND present at home. And you’re totally right, there is a way to be more sustainable, and flipping your classroom with the help of someone who has done it before is one giant step in that direction.
You’ve been making videos this year and now want to know how to use them again.
Maybe this year hasn’t been all bad, because you worked your butt off and now have videos you made in order to be accessible to your students, but you want to know how to effectively use them in a classroom setting that has in-person and remote students at any given time.
You know the benefits of flipping, but need the steps to make it happen.
You’ve seen flipping in action or have heard of the benefits and know that this is a great time to take advantage of in the world of education, but haven't had the encouragement, clear steps to take in front of you, or someone to do it with you.
You want to use your summer thoughtfully and intentionally
You have no problem investing 3-5 (give or take) hours per week in making your flipped classroom a reality as long as you know that every bit of energy you invest is a strategic and meaningful step toward creating your thriving flipped classroom and getting the results you want.
You’re ready to become the calm and collected, guide-on-the-side educator you’ve always dreamed of
You're tired of working and thinking harder than your students and want to increase student accountability and engagement in their own learning. So why not invest in a tried-and-true strategy that you can customize and make it work now?
You’re ready to not DIY this important aspect of your classroom
Unlike pretty much every other aspect of your classroom, you don’t have to DIY this big one because you know you can rely on the experience of someone who has already worked out the kinks and you can do it alongside the collaborative PLC environment of Flipped Classroom Formula™.ENROLL NOW
I personally cannot wait to guide you over these next 10 weeks…
Creating a flipped classroom literally transformed my teacher-life.
I’ve experienced first hand what it feels like to transition from an unreasonably-demanding daily teacher-grind where I’m the sage-on-the-stage very much working intellectually harder than my students, to the more sustainable daily flow of being a guide-on-the-side educator that I thought was never possible.
More than anything else, I want to share that with you today.
If you’re a teacher coming out of the 2020-2021 school year knowing there’s got to be a better, more sustainable way to do all of this important work, then you owe it to yourself to at least take a risk-free p lunge to see what your life as a flipped classroom teacher looks like.
To experience firsthand the differentiation, student engagement, and sustainability that it provides -- and to take real, tangible steps toward taking back your evenings and weekends for your family-time and self-care.
Should you choose to accept my invitation, I personally guarantee that these next 10 weeks will be completely and utterly life changing for you, your students, and your family.
I look forward to meeting you personally inside Flipped Classroom Formula™.
All my best,
