4. My thoughts on this article:

4.1. I completely agree with the hesitation the author of this article had about flipping their classroom. I, myself, would be very fearful at first because I am used to the way I do things now and I find it to be successful the way it is. I am curious to see, however, what flipping a few subjects would do in my classroom.
