Grounded in one high school’s experience, “What Do I Teach for 90 Minutes?” is essential reading for those considering a move to block scheduling and those already on the block who want to realize its full potential. The book extensively addresses both pedagogical and administrative aspects of teaching English on the block:

  • Preparation—types of blocks, key transition issues.
  • Curriculum—(re)defining goals/content; planning and scheduling; student support services.
  • Administration—27 key concerns; coordinating schoolwide and departmental decisions; professional development.

Sample materials include unit/lesson plans, time management plans, classroom learning center materials, and school polices geared to the block.
