        I don't like the idea of a completely flipped classroom. I have a diverse group of learners in my class and there is no way every single student will go home and watch the video so I always have a plan B. Students who do the work at home can move on to the next task and students that don't will get it done in class with some help.

          Engagement is an integral part of the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework, so I would definitely check it out. You can learn more about UDL in general from: http://www.cast.org/udl/

          There are also some great books about UDL from practitioners. Check out one or more of the following:

          UDL Now!: A Teacher's Monday-Morning Guide to Implementing Common Core Standards Using Universal Design for Learning

          Design and Deliver: Planning and Teaching Using Universal Design for Learning

          Universal Design for Learning in the Classroom: Practical Applications (What Works for Special-Needs Learners

          Best,
