The Flipped Classroom Model in Catechetical Pedagogy

If you’re in the field of education, you’ve probably heard the term flipped classroom. The flipped classroom philosophy involves taking the portions of learning that typically happen in a classroom (think of the content from lectures and readings) and having students complete them at home, ahead of class time.

Class time is then spent reinforcing the content that students have read and reviewed before class (think activities, discussion, and projects). In other words, what is typically completed as classwork is homework preceding class, and what is typically assigned as homework, is classwork!

You’d be more likely to see a flipped classroom model being implemented in a tradition classroom with an academic subject. However, this approach can certainly be adapted as a catechetical pedagogy as well!

The flipped classroom approach may offer some key benefits to the families and children in your Catholic religious education program, including opportunities for intergenerational catechesis and more dedicated class time for students to explore and discuss their Catholic faith.

The model also presents an opportunity to increase your connection and engagement with families as you ask them to be partners in the catechetical process.

Finally, the approach really lends itself to the use of rich multimedia resources, including robust video and audio, that helps to teach as it engages families.

 The flipped classroom approach may offer some key benefits to the families and children in your Catholic religious education program, including opportunities for intergenerational catechesis and more dedicated class time for students to explore and discuss their Catholic faith.
