**Slope Unit Outline – November 28th and 29th –
**

Danielle’s first go at a flipped classroom looks like the plan below. The students will be taking home ‘kits’ to help them prepare for application and consolidation of skills at school the day after. Danielle will introduce the lesson briefly, guide the activity then move around the room to discover which students engaged with the take-home kit the night before.

Below are the first three days.
