Guided by Best Practices for Learning and Created from Science Research on the Adolescent Brain
Longer class periods allow students to practice and develop skills and strive to understand and analyze material on a deeper level. Extended class periods provide teachers with the flexibility to plan and design a range of learning experiences. And, the balance of the daily schedule provides students time to conference with teachers individually and in small groups on papers, labs and projects and advance community initiatives and dialogues with their peers. The goal is to support meaningful academic engagement, inquiry-based and experiential learning and a more balanced and healthy school experience.
