I am always in the process of creating new resources for educators. Here’s the current collection of books (for free tools, templates, and resources, go to my main web site).
What Are Your Students Going to DO Today? In 2014, I started sharing one free teaching strategy with my readers each month to help you answer this question and plan engaging learning experiences. These exclusive articles were not published anywhere else and they were only available for a limited time. . . until now!
This book includes the collection of all 60 of these exclusive articles published since 2014. Each article is 3-5 pages and includes more specific details such as why use the strategy, what challenges to consider before implementing the strategy, how to adapt the strategy based on your learning outcomes, class size, and discipline, and some articles include templates and worksheets to help you plan ideas for your courses. 301 pages; available in .pdf format.
The FLIP It Success Guide: The 7 Characteristics of Successful Flipped and Active Learning Experiences. The purpose of this Success Guide is to help you examine the seven characteristics of successful flipped and active learning classrooms. Each section of the book includes an overview of each characteristic, a description of how it influences the flipped learning environment, and what you’ll notice if you aren’t paying attention to that characteristic. Each section also includes reflection questions for you to consider as you think about why your flipped lesson or course isn’t working the way you thought it would and what to do about it.

I divided the book into five chapters, and each chapter ends with questions you can use for continued reflection, discussion, and application. Available exclusively on amazon.com. ISBN 978-0912150284
