Definitions for "Block scheduling"
Rearranging time within the six-hour instructional day; most common example is rearranging a high school's traditional six-or seven-period day of 50 to 55 minutes per period into four academic blocks of time ranging from 75 to 90 minutes. Many modified versions of this system exist.
Instead of traditional 40- to 50-minute periods, block scheduling allows for periods of an hour or more so that teachers can accomplish more during a class session. It also allows for teamwork across subject areas in some schools. For example, a math and science teacher may teach a physics lesson that includes both math and physics concepts.
an alternative approach to daily schedules in which larger time blocks are set aside for specific academic subjects. Return to the top
