Flipping is a unique way of teaching and when you surprise stakeholders with something new, regardless of its effectiveness, there is a chance for people to feel left out of the loop. 
  1. Students
    Before you flip, tell your students. Take some time in your class to tell students what you plan to do. Explain how it's going to work and what you expect from students. This helps with push back from all stakeholders
  2. Parents
    Take some time before you implement your flip to send a communication home to parents. This can come in the form of an email or a note. Ask if they have questions. Be honest with your prospects of flipped class working.
  3. Administrator(s)
    Often times administrators are left out of the loop when they should be included. Take a moment to meet with an admin in your building to let them know what you are planning. They may even have some feedback!
