Ideally I would like everyone to use a growth mindset with this lesson. Sincerely reflect over your writing life and explore an Achilles Heel writing process topic. Though some of you were in the Crowsnest last year and may have heard too much on this topic (though some would argue you can never too much on this!), research Carol Dweck’s Mindsets (Fixed mindset vs. growth mindset) for more information on this important topic. Once you and your partner have a specific topic, find several flipped classroom lessons already online. When you and your partner agree (and do you see how much you will learn about this topic coming to consensus?) on the best or the two top flipped lessons–video(s), infographic(s), or whatever medium, then compose 2-3 sentences of Standard English appreciating the content of the lesson as well as how effective it was delivered. You can compose this in a word document, check for grammar and spelling, and then paste it in the comment box underneath this blog post. We can then all learn from what you have curated as the best flipped lessons on the topic. After you curate this information, begin the process of brainstorming a way to make your flipped classroom lesson better.
NB: In any English classroom project like this, it is important to remember your audience. In our case it is your partner and classmates. We all hope to become more mindful of our own writing issues and turn them into strengths by the end of this process.
