New Methods

FCS helps schools create a course that is based in learning theory and incorporates innovative methods and appropriate technologies. Throughout the development process, experts at FCS in learning theory, methodology, curriculum design, and assessment/evaluation work with you to help ensure that the emerging course will produce the desired learning outcomes.

  • Upside- Down method
    • Rather than starting a lesson with the identification of procedures and simple examples, and working up to a rich, challenging problem, teachers who practice Upside-down Teaching begin with the rich, challenging problem. Seeley suggests the following outline: Start with a rich problem, engage students in dealing with the problem by discussing, comparing, and interacting, help students connect and notice what they’ve learned, then assign exercises and homework. This approach is similar to project based learning.
  • Flipped Classroom
    • "Flipped" or "reverse" teaching, where students learn the content at home via videos and podcasts and then apply it in class.
