I’m finding the lesson lengths to be problematic.
I am not one to try and be a special flower, but as I have encountered more and more lessons that are 65 minutes, 75 minutes, 105 minutes, it has become impossible to plan out classes. If my class was an hour, or an hour and a half, or the 50minute class that I have, few of the lesson match well, creating a need to assign the check for understandings as homework, or extend into the next class and transition into the next lesson, that also won’t fit into that time slot.
I don’ t know if there is a good solution for this, and I am not saying that having lessons that extend 2 class periods is a problem, but when a lesson is 1.2 classes, it makes for scattered transitions and weird down time.
I’m open to suggestions. I am currently on unit 5 (we skipped unit 4 and will be coming back to it after we do the App create task) which will conclude at the end of the semester if everything goes on schedule.
