Giving Students the Ability to Focus
Block scheduling is an effective tool used to help students gain a greater focus on lessons and mastering objectives.
Block scheduling allows students to concentrate on fewer courses at a time in a condensed schedule (typically a nine-week period). By spending more time on each subject, students can focus their efforts on fewer subject areas, without having to jump from subject to subject every day. And because more time is spent on a subject, often coursework can be worked on during an extended class session and real-time coursework help can be offered.
At Insight, block scheduling is offered in high school science and social studies courses.
Another advantage is its help with credit recovery. With a condensed and more focused schedule, students who need to recover a credit often find they can get caught up more quickly.
