Abstract

In terms of ineffectiveness and inconsistency of current college English extensive reading course, it is high time that instructors searched for a more creative and innovative approach to take the place of conventional teaching method. Flipped classroom teaching mode avoids disadvantages of traditional teacher-centered lecture and adopts active in-class tasks and pre-/post-class assignments. In this paper, the author gives a detailed account of the flipped classroom, and attempts to characterize it with its theoretical fundamentals, which account for the feasibility of this new method in extensive reading course in particular. The author constructs a theoretical argument that flipped approaches might stimulate students' interest in reading in and out of the class as well as improving the process of teaching and learning. Meanwhile, the paper lists some unavoidable challenges from the perspective of teachers and students, which lead to further research in this field.
