A 7th teaching period?

August 21, 2009 am31 3:00 am

Not NYC. In Texas. Most high school teachers I’ve met here teach seven each day.

How effective could that possibly be? Can you imagine how little time is available for planning? And how exhausted teachers must be when they actually sit down to plan?

And I just mentioned places that seem to be more successful with teaching, they seem to have fewer teaching hours, more planning time.

    As of last year we had 5 classes and 2 plannings. So 7 periods.

    (We had to cut back to 6 periods this year though — budget cuts, of course.)
