Re: Block Schedule
Depending on how many kids you share with sports because they will certainly fight for the double blocked period.
I've taught in both straight 7 and block schedule (4 & 5)
4 block is by far my least favorite. The only classes that are allowed to double block is athletics!!! District still on this system.
5 block was great. 10 total classes in a 2 day period. Band and athletics were double blocked. District left this and went back to straight 7 after 2 years.
My high school is potentially going to a modified blocked schedule next year. There will be 5 periods daily. The 1st and 5th period will be seen every day. 2nd, 3rd, and 4th period will be seen every other day.
I am at 5A high school with 4 competitive bands, a percussion class, a jazz band class, and a color guard class.
How would you schedule your classes? We would like to see our performance bands everyday. We are not allowed to reschedule in the second semester.
What are some pros and cons to blocked scheduling? Any recommendations?
