In this article, education professor and owner of FLIP It Consulting, Barbi Honeycutt, addresses a major concern of many educators trying to create a flipped classroom. Teachers can easily feel overwhelmed by the time requirements needed to switch to this instructional model. The author suggests adapting the idea of creating margins, “the gap between rest and exhaustion;” advocated by author, speaker, and professional coach Michael Hyatt. The article outlines five recommendations for building margins into a flipped learning environment that can help teachers create a successful student-owned learning experience without burning out. While this publication focuses on higher education teaching strategies, the tips are relevant for any high school educator currently using, or considering, a flipped classroom approach.
