Chris has been flipping his Year 8 core Music class for over two years now. The impetus to flip came when the 10-week course was slashed to only five weeks. Chris still wanted to offer a rich, enjoyable experience for the students but only had half the time. The new course has been a great success and feedback from students has been overwhelmingly positive. Canvas is the ideal platform for flipping lessons, not only theoretical but also practical. Students can learn at their own pace, have more pathways for learning through the varied flipped content and are more likely to meet with success. Chris has now begun to use Canvas' Mastery Pathways to further differentiate this unit.
