I teach high school and my school is going from an eight block schedule where we had four classes a day that are 80 minutes long and we meet ever other day, A day and B day. To a 7 period day were classes are 45 minutes and we see the students everyday. I have never taught in this kind of schedule so this will be totally different for me.
I teach Ceramic and Fundamentals of Art class so if you have made this transition or teach with this type of schedule please pass on any suggestions you have on how you run your class. Suggestions on lecturing, handing out supplies, cleaning up or any time saving advise would be really appreciated.
Hope everyone new school year is starting off great.
