Our high school has “block” scheduling. This was a major consideration in choosing course levels for my Easy to Love student. In block scheduling, students usually have four classes a semester, or half year, sort of like college, and then a lunch and access period where students can do homework or see other teachers for extra help if that particular teacher is “off” at the same time.
Coming from an eight subject year long load–with eight subjects of homework assignments and test schedules, year long, I thought this would be easier for my Easy to Love child. Students still have all eight subjects in high school every year. The subjects are just divided in half and the class periods are doubled, 80 minutes. This is how students can get a year’s worth of knowledge in half a year.
