  • The term used for scheduling of fewer but longer classes to increase in-class time length for students in middle or high school. Advocates point out that it allows more in-class time by avoiding period-switching delays, more electives to be taken over the year, and more class content to be covered in compa rison with traditional daily schedules. It has been criti cized for exceeding students' attention spans and producing long time periods in which students are not taught some subjects.
