I am reading more about schools that are considering changing from
the "traditional" units of about 52 minutes every day to much longer
periods of 90-120 minutes every other day. With all of the concerns,
maybe we need to get those who are trying out some of these new time
schedules and those who are about to together to share what's happening.
Any takers? We in Bellevue are looking forward to the opportunity to try
longer periods of time next year even though it will mean doing things in
an entirely different way. I makes no sense to me to go to periods that
are twice as long just to teach two regular lessons every other day. What
successes and failures are you having? What seems to be working and
why? What resources and what kind of training did you get along the way?
