Time Allotment per Learning/Subject Areas Grades 1 to 6 and Grades 7 to 10

A one-hour period for Homeroom/Guidance Program is provided for the weekly meeting between the teacher-adviser and the class.

However, for grades 7 to 10 a separate period for Independent/Cooperative Learning ranging from two to four hours weekly may be provided as open time for learning in order to give students the option to learn on their own and/or with others those topics, content, or processes that they can handle by themselves. The provision of a separate period for independent and cooperative learning (i.e., on top of their adoption by teachers as a teaching strategy or instructional activity) is an option that schools might wish to consider for classes that can benefit the most from such class programming.
