Is there a way to implement a Day A and B into Universal?

Is it possible to cover a workshop in adequate time if I switch to Day A and B? I'm in the 2nd workshop already.

    Please give us a little more information. How long are your class periods? How many students do you have? Most teachers can teach the workshops using a two-day schedule for workshops. It will take a longer, of course, to complete a workshop, but that is not a problem usually. Email me directily at AskDee@sbcglobal.net, and we can discuss this more fully.

    Our middle school teachers have a 57 minute block and they use an A day and B day with Universal. This is our first year with Universal, after 12 years with Enterprise.


    If you successfully implemented A and B days with Enterprise Edition, you should not have any difficulty implementing A and B days with Universal. The teachers will probably not complete the Real Book in one year, but that is really not a problem. I would help them plan as a group so they all complete the same number of workshops, leaving the other workshops for a second year of READ 180.
