My goal is to improve student’s preparation for class and to foster engagement in team based activities. I hope to effectively flip my classroom by putting reading assignments in Perusall. The beauty of Perusall is that it ensures that students will complete their reading assignments before class. Students exchange questions and answers about the subject matter as they read, the software grades them on the completeness of their reading. For easy access to when reading assignments are due I’ll publish my course outline in a phone app using WordPress.  Other applications I intend to use are PostItPlus for an in-class activity, Google Docs for team assignments, and CATME for peer evaluations.
