I enjoyed your response. Have you taught Calculus on the block? How have
your AP scores been affected. The gentleman who responded has seen the
effects of the block on an AP program that expects the students to learn the
content and pass the test. It has nothing to do with being creative! It has
to do with attention span. No matter how varied the activities, it is
difficult to keep one's attention span for more than an hour. The business
world figured this out long ago. It also has to do with losing total class
time. I'm sure you agree that the more contact time with students, the better
chance they have to learn the material.
