The Flipped Classroom
For examples of how to "flip your library", explore the following tabs of the 'Library @ MHMS' libguide:
Home - Destiny, Search Wisely, Online Graphic Novel, and Chime In
Black-Eyed Susan Books
Book Trailers YA
Edmodo is a sensitive decision for some (allowing teachers/students on social networks together), but check with your school principal if they are on board. If so, all this content that is on libguides can be more easily discussed by a network of students, librarians, teachers, and of course the parents.

What does a Flipped Classroom for a Library Look Like?
Using tools that kids will use to deliver content.
GOAL: Create an online culture of information literacy, in school and at home
GOAL: Share digital content with students own their own time
GOAL: Engage students by allowing them to participate in the discussion
With the library, we even get to engage the students with interesting topics like books, movies, the newest technologies, sports, etc. They may be more willing to buy in than for content areas.
We can connect the library with the content areas without the students even knowing ;)
We can use tools like: LibGuides and Edmodo
Philosophy Behind the Flip
"I think we still cling to the false belief that the teacher has some innate knowledge that students can't get anywhere but from them. Beyond the textbook itself, which is generally written to inform the student, everything a student wants to know is already on the internet. The teacher must stop thinking of her/himself as the giver of knowledge."
