An Educator's Guide to Block Scheduling: Decision Making, Curriculum Design, and Lesson Planning Strategies

Overview

Educational reform often brings changes which are superficial at best and artificial at worst.

Overview

Educational reform often brings changes which are superficial at best and artificial at worst. However, a change is beginning to occur within secondary schools which is altering the fundamental structure of education in an attempt to create real improvement in the way in which American students are taught: the restructuring of the school day by means of extended time periods for instruction. Though it sounds simple, this restructuring will actually result in a total reconsideration of the way in which students learn, the way in which teachers teach, and ultimately, the way in which the school day is conducted. This book provides a balanced review of the points every district must consider when adopting a block schedule. Each of the four major subject areas taught in the high school level--Mathematics, Science, English, and Social Studies--has a specific chapter set aside for an in-depth discussion of the points which must be considered in planning and implementing the block. Various models of extended block schedules provide an insightful overview of how extended time periods for instruction will contribute to a more positive learning environment for students and teachers alike. School administrators, practicing teachers, educational consultants, parents, students interested in issues of education. A Longwood Professional Book
