The 4 x 4 Block Scheduling Model: What Do Students Have To Say about It?
Hurley, J. Casey
NASSP Bulletin, v81 n593 p64-72 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. Students overwhelmingly favored the schedule. Advantages included getting better grades, participating in school-sponsored clubs during the school day, having less homework, and graduating a half-year early. Disadvantages include class length, uneven schedules, course sequencing, and makeup work. (MLH)
