Block Scheduling Strategies and Perceptions

Ryan Michael Kilpatrick

Abstract


This action research examines block scheduling at the high school level. Participants from a suburban high school in Pennsylvania answered questions about successful and unsuccessful strategies and their perceptions of block scheduling. Many high schools across the country have implemented a block schedule format, but questions remain about its benefits and drawbacks. The results received from fourteen teacher participants and two administrators point to an overall positive attitude toward block scheduling.In their responses, participants identify benefits, drawbacks, successful and unsuccessful strategies used in a block schedule.
