Scaffolded Semi-Flipped General Chemistry Designed To Support Rural Students’ Learning
Students who lack academic maturity can sometimes feel overwhelmed in a fully flipped classroom. Here an alternative, the Semi-Flipped method, is discussed. Rural students, who face unique challenges in transitioning from high school learning to college-level learning, can particularly profit from the use of the Semi-Flipped method in the General Chemistry classroom. This method brings together preparation before class, active learning in class, and a supportive homework system, and it appears to have significant benefits both for students and for the instructor.
