Summary

Opinionnaires were distributed to 478 business and office practice teachers, counselors, principals, vocational directors, and superintendents concerned with business and office practice programs in Utah high schools to ascertain their opinions concerning the advantages and disadvantages of two-period block classes compared to two one-period classes not taught consecutively in covering equivalent course material. A total of 295, or 58 percent, usable opinionnaires were returned and tabulated. A majority of respondents agreed that by using the two-period block (1) more material can be taught, (2) related subject correlation is better, (3) more flexibility is permitted, (4) student achievement is higher, (5) individualized instruction is better, (6) vocational counseling is improved, and (7) more usable working time is provided. It was concluded that the two-period block even though it presents some scheduling problems, is superior to the one-period block as a method of teaching vocational business classes. (ps)
