    I've taught HS for 4 years and taught at the university level before that ... so, I'm not a stranger to the world of ed.

    BUT, there is a word used often here that I don't understand. The word is "specials." What are specials? How do they work?


    Okay, now that I look like a dunce ... what is something you see on the forum that is an unknown to you.

    A "special" is a special subject like music, art, PE, computer, or library. Don't think I forgot anything. I'm assuming that's what you're referring to.

    Every class has a set time where they go to their special. Most schools do a rotating schedule so the kids see a different class everyday. I suppose the high school equivalent would be electives.

    We used to have VOCAB as a special when I was in elementary school. Wanna guess which day NO ONE looked forward to?

    During Specials is also the time when teachers have their "conference time". Specials is also called Co-Curr.
