Summary

Flexible scheduling benefits both students and teachers because, in any specific schools educational program, it makes the best and most appropriate use of time, space, equipment, and teachers talents. Such scheduling has been used successfully at Minnetonka east junior high school, where the school day is divided into 15 daily time modules of 28 minutes each. Students use one module for lunch and 14 for classes, with two modules per day devoted to some subjects and one to others. Teachers use 10 for teaching, three or four for preparation and evaluation, and one for lunch. With this schedule students are able to follow a foreign language sequence throughout the 3 years of junior high school and continue it in high school through the 12th grade if they desire. The article includes sample schedules for teachers and students and a chart of curriculum offerings in grades 7 through 9, showing the number of schedule modules devoted to each subject daily. This article is published in the "Minnesota foreign language bulletin," volume 7, number 2, January 1967. (am)
