Math teacher Jeff Baugus' flipped classroom approach started with complaints from students who struggled to complete their homework. Baugus, from Woodlawn Beach Middle School in Gulf Breeze, Fla., and last year's county Teacher of the Year, experimented with technology that allowed him to record lessons that students could watch at home, and then lead the class the next day to help answer questions and guide students through the new material. "It is very interactive learning, with the entire class involved," he said of the approach.
