I teach at school that has an A/B schedule with around 110 minute blocks. Everyone I teach with loves it! Honestly, I hate it!!! I think one of the reasons I'm not happy this year is that I find 110 minutes with one class too long. I have tried just about everything, but I find that many students just don't have the attention span to work and concentrate that long. They start to shut down 20-30 minutes before we finish. I have asked other teachers what they do and most tend to give the last part of the class as a study/homework time, which I don't consider the most effective use of time. Anyway, just needed to vent. This block scheduling has made my job not as enjoyable, which is too bad since I really enjoy teaching. I would love to teach somewhere with a traditional schedule or with classes between 50-85 minutes. What has been your experience?
