This is a modification of the current 4x4 block schedule we currently use. Students will have 5 classes on A-days and 5 classes on B-days. Classes will be approximately 65 minutes vs. 83 minutes. Classes will still run either a semester or a year in length. Each semester will be divided into terms as currently practiced. Grades will be posted each term.
Think back to when you were a little kid (around 5-7 years old). What were you afraid of? Monsters under the bed, the dark, Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street (he freaked me out!)? It could be any number of things that might seem silly now that we’re older, and supposedly wiser.
The sad thing is that the monsters and darkness come at us in different forms as we move through different stages of life. For me it’s speaking in public, eating vegetables, driving with my daughter, and I guess the FEAR of failure in general.
