“More Oral Production from a Flipped Class”

This presentation addressed the results from a flipped classroom approach over 2 semesters.  Low oral production of end of semester assessments compelled this instructor of a Spanish class to reexamine his instructional approach. A flipped classroom approach was implemented for a few lessons. After one semester oral production improved. The second semester more lessons were flipped and oral production improved again. This presentation showed how production increased over the course of 2 semesters.
