Description: A collection of annotated links to information (pro and con) about block scheduling. "Classes would be longer than the traditional approximate one hour. Examples are 75 minutes, 90 minutes and 110 minutes. There are many ways the school year could look. On one model called a 4 x 4, the students take four classes in the fall and four different classes in the spring. This way eight classes can be completed in one year. Another model could have four classes meeting on MWF and four more on TTh. The next week the MWF classes would meet on TTh, etc. continuing all year. Eight classes can be completed in one year in this model also."
