Short Session Description:
Flipping the Homeschool Coop: Plus and MInuses!
Full Session Description:
We want to probe into the ideas of flipping homeschooling coops. The idea is to free up more hands-on active learning during homeschool coop "classes" to make the events more social and to foster deeper learning. The flipper will need to provide some sort of pre-class training which we hope to deal with in the presentation. We would like to rapidly cover some of the dos and don'ts.

Looking forward to this weekend.
Please join for sure. You can be one of the "experts" since you are doing it. I have a lady named Jennifer that also does it but she may or may not be there. One of my main exploratory questions for my dissertation will be on the very subject of FLIP definition (s).
