The "flipped classroom" could work. It allows for creativity in solutions, true understanding of topics, and gives control and therefore responsibility back to the students. Students who take an interest and ownership in learning, are more likely to develop skills that will carry them through life. Rote memorization does not give anyone the problem solving and innovated mind required for a successful future. However, too many students rely in memorizing for the test. The ability to not be daunted by problems that beset you is a gift. Flip blooms, and watch students develop those "outside of the box" critical thinking skills.
