That said, we at the middle school have stubbornly refused to switch because of
a perception we have about our student's short attention spans.... Most of us
dealing with the younger students in our district find that we've adjusted quite
well to 48 minute classes even with preparation and clean up time thrown in,
and, selfishly, having prep time every other day instead of daily doesn't appeal
I guess you'll just have to look at the overall situation and weigh the pros and
cons according to YOUR unique situation. You don't describe the forms of block
classes that you think will cause a R.I.F....
