Intensive Scheduling: Restructuring America's Secondary Schools through Time Management.
Hottenstein, David S.
Some of the difficult questions surrounding intensive scheduling, along with examples of successful applications of this approach, are described in this document. This book offers a blueprint from a practitioner's perspective and is intended for educators and lay people interested in improving secondary schools. Chapter 1 demonstrates how to manage change successfully from theory to practice. Chapter 2 analyzes the Hatboro-Horsham case study and explores why block scheduling has become so controversial. Chapter 3 suggests ways to train teachers to teach in a longer block of time and advice is given on instructional strategies, classroom management, curriculum pacing, and assessment. Chapter 4 examines the implementation of instructional strategies. Chapter 5 looks at how intensive scheduling will affect curriculum development and technology utilization. Chapter 6 analyzes program evaluation and its importance in the process. (Includes an index, a case study appendix, and three references.) (RJM)
