Now, I didn't have it in a sharable format, but that didn't stop me from making that promise.
So I spent my first day off in a while to put it all together - it was actually really helpful, since for the first time in almost my entire career, I know what I'm teaching next year, and it's the same class as this year.
Most of the people I work with in the #flipclass community share the feeling I have about TeachersPayTeachers: that it's exploitative of teachers who are desperately trying to improve their practice. We work in an industry that has become so much more powerful by the huge amount of free education available on YouTube and the internet. And yet we lock our work behind a paywall so we can make money off of other teachers?!
Why don't other people think that's as messed up as I do?
So here's my part to break the culture of pay-for-lesson-plans. I'm sharing my entire course for free. If something you've heard me talk about isn't there, please let me know and I'll add it.
A lot of what's on this document is my original work, but I've also used work from my colleagues, both in real life and on Twitter/Voxer. That's another reason why I find TPT so repellant. Ideas aren't birthed in our brains without being nurtured and fertilised by the work of others. How can you monetise an idea that has come from hundreds of other people?
I urge you to give your curriculum away for free as well. We get better when there is more collective learning that's open and available.
Enough talking. Here's the google doc with my curriculum.
If you have ideas for improvement, please let me know. If you see something you think we can collaborate on, please let me know. My hope is that this is helpful for teachers trying to envision what (one version of) 1:1 flipped instruction can look like for real.
