without the endless research, uncertainty around what works best, or the Motivation Crushing Question "What the Heck Do I do Now?"
You know that flipping your classroom will have a true impact on your students and your teaching career, but you also know that going at it alone will be difficult and time consuming. Allow me to use my almost 10 years of flipping experience to guide you in building your own flipped classroom without the stress or the mess.
[Concrete and Measurable Impact Within and Springing from the Flipped Classroom]
Perhaps in your most courageous moment you've made the commitment to start. You've jotted down some ideas in a google doc, done some research on all the aspects involved, gotten all giddy over the potential impact, and maybe even recorded a couple videos.
If you're super committed, maybe you even invested in some type of recording software or training on impulse, assuring yourself that you would use it in the mystical yet elusive some day.
But even with the best intentions, most would-be flipped teachers end up abandoning the project, missing out on the increased student scores and accountability, while you go about the same ol' mundane process you've been doing for a while.
Without a super clear, step-by-step project plan most teachers get completely lost. They fall victim to paralyzing tech hangups, surmounting big decisions and structural changes to make in their classrooms, and the dreaded resistant response of their students, or worse, parents. The experts always make it sound so easy. A time-sucking sticking point, or a lack of clarity over exactly what they need to do to create their flipped classroom is just not an option in the high paced, high stress nature of what we do as teachers.
As an already busy and stressed out teacher, with lessons to plan, papers to grade, IEP meetings to attend, and maybe even a family and social-life at home, your sanity literally can't afford to veer off course. And the moment you get lost in your flipped classroom creation, it's almost impossible to recover. Therefore, flipping your classroom is one thing in your teaching career you want to get right the first time, without the trial and error.
Here's the thing; you've already taken the first step. You're here. You know the possibilities of the flipped classroom and why it's the best decision for you and your students right now. You've got the drive to make it happen, now let's give you the step-by-step project plan along with the guidance and mentorship to implement your thriving flipped classroom.
(or worse, not treating it like a project at all)
Building a successful flipped classroom isn't particularly hard or complicated, but there are so many moving pieces and potential failure points along the way.
What recording software to use? How to structure the lessons? Where to host the videos online for easy student access?
These are just some of the MANY questions you'll have to answer along the way.
Most teachers approach flipping their classroom as just another thing on their to-do list. But the thing is, you can't treat flipping your course as just another "strategy," "tactic," or "innovation." It's an immensely valuable and fragile project that when done right can change the trajectory of your students education and of your career.
It's time to respect it for what it is- a PROJECT - and approach it accordingly.
You've seen it time and time again, when a teacher takes on a new project or makes a change in their classroom that is sure to bring results. They start strong at the beginning of the year, and then come November (or maybe even sooner) the drive and passion has fizzled out, the endless to-do list got too overwhelming, and the new project takes a backseat or leaves the moving car of your teaching day all together.
Like any athlete or performer, as a teacher, you have to set yourself up for success with habits and systems that you can fall back on when the going gets rough (which is normally two weeks in, am I right?).
Let's stop running on fumes and relying on our passion alone to get us to the finish line of something we are committed to, and finally set up a system that will get you there.
You know the saying, even the best laid plans often go awry. And, boy do we know that as teachers. We make the best plans that we are so excited to implement, and then we go for it and there's twenty obstacles we didn't foresee. But often times we handle those as they arise, rather than having a proactive plan.
What if you had a plan? What if you had solutions to problems before they even pop up that are based on almost ten years of experience and trial-and-error?
Let's be proactive. Let's be intentional and mindful of obstacles that we know will occur, proactively address them, and have a plan for when they come up so that your flipped classroom can continue to thrive.
Whether it be standards based grading, flipped classroom, project-based learning, or ANY of the other great new trends we see in education that bring results for our students, no one classroom is the same, no one teacher is the same, and no matter how much research you do on your own, you will never find all the answers without using trial-and-error and learning in those first years of implementing.
You try one technique you found from a blog and it works alright, but then try another technique from a summer professional development read and it totally flops. You know you'll eventually get there, finding what works best, but it will be 5 years from now, when you need results NOW. For both your sanity and for your students' success, you need results now.
You just want to know what works, and you want tangible, concrete steps to make it happen, THIS school year.
It's time we truly learn from one another, our colleagues, call our mistakes and obstacles for what they are and allow others to learn from them in the process. And I've got nine years worth of flipping mistakes and obstacles you can learn from.
Even though the flipped classroom has been around for some time, and a ton of teachers have made the transition, not all flipping is created equal.
Not all flipping is done effectively or in a way that drives student learning and growth.
And, let's be real. This journey is an investment of YOUR time, energy, and expertise. So, it may be easy to see the benefits of the flipped classroom
... but the stakes of EXECUTING a flipped classroom are high.
But as long as you can avoid the biggest blunders that sink most would-be flipped classrooms, the path is paved for you and your thriving Flipped Classroom.
One that allows you to achieve more freedom in your class time, increase student learning and accountability, and make an impact on their scores and your success as an educator.
The key ingredient to all of this is a formula for the flipped classroom.
And with your permission, that's what I'd LOVE to show you how to create.
"I can't describe the impact FCF has had on me and my classroom. Mandy has impacted my life in ways that I can't describe. I don't even think she knows how much she has done for me. Helping me help students and giving me back more time for my family is more than I can ask for and she has helped with both. Mandy was willing to help all of us during each step of the flipping process, answer any question we had, no matter how small or silly we thought it was. "
I've taken everything I've learned from building multiple thriving flipped classrooms over ten years of teaching, 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.
FLIPPED CLASSROOM FORMULA ISN'T SO MUCH A TRAINING PROGRAM AS IT IS AN IMPLEMENTATION PROGRAM.
Flipped Classroom Formula is the ONLY program of its kind that…
1. Treats the flipped classroom like the true project that it is.
2. Uses a step-by-step plan for Success
3. Helps Teachers Foresee Obstacles so we can proactively approach them
4. Gives teachers a mentor and partner on the journey.
So if you’re ready to finally do flip your classroom while avoiding the overwhelm and uncertainty
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
Flipped Classroom Formula is the most comprehensive, step-by-step implementation program for teachers who are excited about and COMMITTED to creating and launching their flipped classroom this school year.
By the end of these 30 days, you'll have received access to the FCF Project Plan as well as the first THREE modules.
Meaning, you'll have had the opportunity to build the complete foundation for and create flipped videos for your flipped classroom BEFORE making a final commitment.
If you don't feel totally confident and motivated by your flipped classroom (and your ability to implement it), simply reach out to Mandy at [email protected], show us you've put in the work, and we'll refund your investment.

What teachers asked before signing up for Flipped Classroom Formula

I'm going to walk you through the ENTIRE process. By the end of this course, you will be ready to flip at least your first quarter of the school year.
I do not doubt that each and every one of you are fully capable of flipping your classrooms on your own.

It will make the work you are already planning to do much more focused and effective so that your entire summer is NOT spent on work. You deserve time to relax.
I am going out on a limb here by mentioning money on my sales page. Most marketing experts say to NEVER do that!! Well, we're different - our industry is different. We aren't making corporate-level salaries and I know that. And that's why I priced this course where it is.

Another point I want to make is that this course can very much count for your professional development units, or whatever that looks like in your district. I encourage you to start conversations with your administration, and to think about the increased emotional and mental investment you will be making to getting your goals accomplished because you are financially investing in yourself, your students, and your classroom.
I'm so glad you are asking this question because I am so passionate about what makes my course different than other professional development opportunities for the flipped classroom.
The answer... is it is light-years different! Other professional development you'll find is philosophical or pedagogical in nature. Which is great... in college!

From right now to a fully implemented, thriving flipped classroom. This course will get you there by guiding you through each actionable step.
Close your eyes. Take a second to envision your ideal classroom. It will look different for every teacher, but at it's core, each vision includes students striving to learn, thriving in the content, collaborating with each other, and showing growth both academically and emotionally.
If you're here, it's because you know that the flipped classroom is something (a BIG thing) that can help you get to that vision. With some work, that you're willing to commit to, expertise from years of experience, and mistakes to avoid, this course will help you reach that vision.

"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 day. I used to get confused about what class I gave a 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 4 x this year, and then lookout next year- I will have videos made AND fun and organized classes."
