    I too now have the class periods and days for my courses. We also run a rotating A/B block. So...

    1A: Modern History
    2A: Ancient History
    3A: Prep
    4A: Ancient History

    1B: US Government
    2B: Ancient History
    3B: Prep
    4B: AP European History

    Not bad... 3rd block is our luck hour, so my prep time will be a bit longer too.

    Well, our students are required to pass a state and federal constitution test, so we built a course around the state government standards, and to spend a semester preparing them for the tests. It's quite fun to teach... lots of really great discussions.

    Where does your school cover the constitution and government issues? In the US History classes? Or?

    We briefly cover the consitution during our first unit of US History I in High School, I LOVE to teach that unit and have debates. However, it mostly covers the formation of the consitution and the bill of rights. I really would love a US Government class, we had it years ago but it got cut.

    I may try and introduce it as an elective, though.

    The principal had to tweak the schedule before the July board meeting and I'm hoping it won't change again. It really throws the kids for a loop when they come back and the class they signed up for isn't there anymore.
    I am teaching
    1st hour - Greenhouse Management (11-12)
    2nd hour - Agricultural Science II (10)
    3rd hour - Floriculture (11-12)
    Lunch
    4th hour - Landscaping (11-12)
    5th hour - planning
    6th hour - Agricultural Communications and Leadership (11-12)
    7th hour - Agricultural Economics and Management (11-12)

    2nd - Honors Geometry (9th grade)
    3rd - PLANNING
    4th - Regular Geometry (10th&11th grader)
    I've got the same second term! :)
