This year is my first year to teach in a block schedule. Overall, I find that block scheduling works very well in science. With the longer class period (1 hour and 20 minutes), my students can complete multiple activities in one class period. Also, students are more likely to complete an experiment within one class period and have time remaining to process what they have learned from the experiment. However, instead of teaching a group of students each day, I teach a group of students every two days. Ultimately, I am very excited about the opportunity to teach in a block schedule this year.
