Description: The national standards for science and mathematics education call for sufficient instructional time for inquiry-oriented activities, accompanying discussion, and explanations of concepts involved. Several of the standards will require increased time to achieve ambitious instructional goals. This article discusses how many schools are turning to block scheduling to meet these goals.
