CAN FLEXIBLE SCHEDULES AFFECT FOREIGN LANGUAGE ENROLLMENTS.
HOYE, ALMON
BASED ON THE PREMISES THAT LENGTH OF CLASSES MAY VARY, THAT TEAM TEACHING AND SPECIAL CLASS GROUPING MAY BE BETTER SUITED FOR STUDY, AND THAT STUDENTS NEED MORE OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE CREATIVELY AND INDEPENDENTLY SUBJECTS NOT USUALLY IN CONVENTIONAL SCHEDULES, CERTAIN NEW SCHEDULAR DESIGNS HAVE BEEN INITIATED IN MINNEAPOLIS JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOLS. A STARTLING RISE IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE ENROLLMENTS RESULTED FROM THESE EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAMS. THE RAMSEY MULTIPLE SCHEDULE ALLOWS COMBINATIONS OF CONVENTIONAL CLASS PERIODS AND SIX FLEXIBLE PERIODS, AND PERMITS INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS TO ELECT ADDITIONAL STUDY SUBJECTS AND ACCELERATED CLASSES. THE FOLWELL MULTIPLE VARIABLE PROGRAM INTRODUCED IN 1965-66 ALLOWS FOUR OR FIVE BLOCK CLASSES WITHIN THE MASTER SCHEDULE, AND STUDENTS, MEMBERS OF TEAMS, ARE SCHEDULED IN 4-HOUR TIME BLOCKS WITH TEAMS OF TEACHERS WHO PLAN PROGRAM VARIATIONS OF THE TIME BLOCK. HOYE'S FLUID BLOCK SCHEDULE, WHICH IS SIMPLER AND HAS MORE VARIABILITY, BREAKS THE DAY INTO LARGE BLOCKS OF TIME INSTEAD OF CONVENTIONAL PERIODS, AND PERMITS TIME MODULE VARIATIONS, SPECIAL GROUPING, INDEPENDENT STUDY, TEAM TEACHING, AND BETTER PLANNING FOR THE NEEDS OF THE STUDENTS. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "MINNESOTA FORIEGN LANGUAGE BULLETIN," VOLUME 6, NUMBER 4, 1966. (AS)
