Q: When is a block not a block ? A: When it's designed by my staff.
Not all block schedules have longer classes every other day. I dreamed of
the chance of getting a block schedule but it was just a dream. We go to
block this year. The school is divided into 4 communities and in 2 of those
the core/basic teachers have a 150 min block of time for instruction.
art and other encore teachers get the students for 40 min blocks of time.
The other 2 communities have separated blocks of 40 min for each subject.
And we "all" have two 60 min blocks in the am to teach intensive reading
So be careful when you praise a block schedule, it might be a
different kind of block.
