In my 90 minute blocks we are actually covering 2 days worth of material
as we won't be having a class the next day. Will that be your case or
will you get 90 minutes every day of the year.

Subject: [Channel-talkalgebra] Multiple Questions
I have been teaching reading and language arts to seventh and/or eighth
graders for the past 13 years. Next year, I will be moving to teaching
seventh grade "regular" math and pre-algebra for the first time.
The district is planning on implementing 90 minute blocks of math for
the first time. Do you have any suggestions or ideas about how this will
work best?
I am considering the following daily format: 1) review previous day's
concept; 2) introduce new concept; 3) practice new concept together as a
large group or possibly in small groups (using hands-on activities as
much as possible); 4) answer questions or review work from small groups;
5) students work alone on what would once have been homework type of
I would also like to do a logic or similar problem of the week that is
briefly introduced on Mondays, due and reviewed on Fridays.
I might also be getting a SmartBoard, so I want to use that to involve
the students as much as possible.
