Theoretical Bases for Block Scheduling
  • May help teachers employ more effective
    pedagogical practices
  • Student learning and long-term memory may be
    enhanced
  • Increases opportunities for individual attention
    which may bolster student motivation

8
Goals of Block Scheduling
  • Continuity of Instruction number of daily
    classes is reduced allows for students to
    concentrate on fewer courses and give teachers
    more planning time.
  • Personalization of the School Environment More
    time to develop stronger relationships Teachers
    are responsible for less students.
  • Choice in Instructional Methods- permit a varied
    approach to instruction more time for guided
    practice
  • Pace of Learning Allows for increased attention
    for individual student learning needs time for
    acceleration and remediation within the class
    periods facilitates differentiated instruction
  • Distractions versus Orderliness Fewer
    transitional times more time spent in class and
    not in the hallways fewer discipline issues

implementation of block scheduling
