    Default I'm moving up

    As many of you know, I currently teach 4th grade. Next year I will be moving to the high school in my district to teach Social Studies. I don't know which subject yet, but it will be U.S. or World History, World Geography, or Gov. & Econ. It really doesn't matter to me. I love Social Studies and this is my chance to see if I want to teach it at that level.

    I'm really looking forward to narrowing my focus to one subject and having a lot more structure in my day. Plus, if I get a student or class that rubs me the wrong way I only have to see them for 55 minutes a day! To top it off, I don't even have to coach. Been there and done that.

    Social Studies was always my favorite class. Especially since there weren't any NBA basketball classes

    They are right around 90 minutes if I recall correctly.

    But you all talk so slow that you can't even finish introductions in 90 minutes.

    Eh?

    Second line.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Some places down here have tried that, calling it block scheduling. You take classes every other day for 90 minutes at a time. Some people like it, but you need more teachers to do it.

    That is how my HS operated.

    BLUE days we had 1st, 3rd, 5th and 7th period
    GREEN days we had 2, 4, 5th and 6th period

    All classes were 90 minutes, except for 5th which was 55 minutes but was every day

    Congrats SK


    I also have block scheduling except my classes are different.
    Green Days: Periods 1-4 with lunch somewhere inbetween.
    Red Days: Periods 5-8 with lunch somewhere inbetween.

    Thanks PG. One of the other things I'm looking forward to is getting to teach some of my former students. My first third graade class is now sophomores and my 2nd class, 1st graders, are now 7th graders. Of course, they may not be thrilled to see me.

    That sounds fun!

    My brother is now in third grade and the first graders I knew back then are now 5th graders at Winding Ridge.
