    are on 90-minute blocks. The reasoning for many schools is that the students can gain more credits in a year (8 instead of 7) so it inherently costs less money. The format lends itself well to some classes, but not all. I teach science, so it's very nice to have a long class for labs, but of course not so much for lecture. Our rule of thumb is to have at least 3 different "segments" for each block, although some teachers don't adhere to that.

    Thanks for sharing your successes and struggles TeacherKen, I always enjoy your diaries!
