The 4 x 4 Block Scheduling Model: What Do Teachers Have To Say about It?
Hurley, J. Casey
NASSP Bulletin, v81 n593 p53-63 Dec 1997
A western North Carolina study explored how 31 teachers and 35 students viewed implementation of the 4 x 4 block schedule in five high schools. Teachers generally favor the 4-period schedule, but several cited absence problems, less student homework, and "uneven" student schedules. To reap full benefits from block schedules, principals must understand and anticipate potentially negative consequences, such as teachers' sacrifice of enrichment activities. (MLH)
