Abstract

It was the purpose of the present study to evaluate the block of time as it is used in Yakima junior high schools. This study had a twofold intent: first to review the literature on the block of time as related to core philosophy, and second to present the results of a study of the activities of Yakima junior high school teachers in the block of time and its related core techniques as well as the results of a study of attitudes toward the block of time as it appears in the Yakima junior high schools.
