Iowa Story: Johnston Social Studies Teacher Blends His Classroom

Hear from Thomas Giffin, a high school Instructional Coach and Social Studies teacher at Johnston Schools in Johnston, IA. Thomas has blended his classroom for several years. At Johnston juniors and seniors have open campus and the blended classroom makes use of this by having days where students are not in the classroom with the teacher, but doing their work in the online portal. He will share why he went this route, the benefits for students, how he scaffolds his students to learn this way, what parents and students are saying and where his students go when they are not in the classroom.

We would LOVE to share your story. If you would like to be interviewed for the Iowa Story of Online, Blended or Flipped Classrooms please contact us- Denise Krefting or Melissa Wicklund.
