Flip the Script on Your Learning Environment
On NPR’s podcast, Inivisibilia, the hosts explore the “invisible things” that shape human behavior. In one particular episode, “Flip the Script,” they highlight stories of how people did the opposite of their natural instinct.
Since we’re trying to inculcate a language, culture, religion, philosophy, and more into our students, we have a tendency to think we have to follow a particular script. Mainly, we think we need to be in the classroom, at desks, instructing our students in the same pattern that we always do.
But what would happen if we flipped the script? What if we deviated from our normal patterns, locations, and instruction?
