we double block algebra I (meets everyday all year!!!) now( this is the 2nd
year) at my high school, the lack of continuity was a problem and the math
scores on the TAAS pre test for freshmen in March this year showed much
improvement. For electives, I see no problem for the long block arrangement -
but all teachers know how much kids forget over the summer, how could we
think they wouldn't forget after 8 months?(Jan - Aug) The core curriculum
needs to meet all year, double block what's important,( band directors
know!!!), offer your electives by semester, but I promise you, the other 90%
will only suffer from this schedule.
