Improving School Climate: Alternating-Day Block Schedule.
Hackmann, Donald G.
Schools in the Middle, v5 n1 p28-33 Sep 1995
Examines the implementation of an alternating day schedule in middle school. It is suggested that block scheduling provides an effective instructional alternative to the traditional six- or seven-period format, creating a relaxed atmosphere while decreasing stress and improving attitudes of both students and teachers. Blocks provide a gradual transition to a developmentally appropriate environment for middle-school students. (AA)
