ADHD at School
School is starting block schedules
Does anybody know anything about block scheduling
in schools? Son’s school is now going to a format, group projects, students working and being equal to
the teachers. Longer classes but more involved learning less homework, not as much pressure on grades….. They are saying this is the way education
is going, more team work. I am not sure how this works for the following reasons: 1) how are you sure all students due the work and not just the stronger willed
kids taking over the project? 2) How do you know how your son is doing if they work together for a few weeks then they will get graded as a group and by the time you find out the grade you are so far away from the actual work how do you keep current? Does this hurt them with colleges as you are graded for the work of the group? This is in middle school and they are just starting this and I feel like they are guinea pigs in a very expensive private school. My son is not great at working in a group and there are some very strong willed boys, how do the teachers keep control of the classroom and is this a good learning environment for an adhd student who gets stressed?
