Advantages of the 4x4 Bell Shedule


  • A teacher will see less students during the day, thereby giving them the ability to spend more time with each individual.

  • Because of the increased span of teaching time, longer cooperative learning activities can be completed in one class periods. Also, there is more time for labs in science classes.

  • Students have less information to deal with over the course of a school day.

  • Because of the decreased number of classes, students have less homework on any given day during the week.

  • The teacher is able to provide more varied instruction during class. Thus, it is easier to deal with students with disabilities and differing learning styles.

  • Planning periods are longer. It seems that with a longer span of time, planning becomes easier and more gets done.
