I am on what is called a trimester schedule for high school. We have
four 70 minute classes a day with one 70 minute planning period. This
last for 12 weeks (Art IA) second trimester some ArtIA classes and some
Art IB classes. During the third trimester it is a repeat of second
trimester. I do not like the schedule. After 12 weeks, the student may
go to another art teacher for the other half. You barely get to know
your students and then they are gone. Some you get to hang on to. We
have five art teachers with 28 in each room.
