Instructional Time for ELA/Literacy

How much time is set aside in your district for ELA/Literacy (Language arts and reading) for 6th grade?

Right now we are blessed with almost 120 minutes/day, but we are on a 4-day week, so it equals to 480 minutes/week. The master schedule team of our jr/sr high school want to cut that in half!!! 60 minutes/day for all ELA/Literacy.

I really need to get an idea of what others are doing.

Thanks!

We have 51 minute periods 4x a week and one day with a 41 minute period. That would be 245 minutes per week.

Our sixth graders get 90 minutes a day. That's 60 minutes of core instruction and then 30 of RtI instruction. Our 7/8 classes get 55 minutes a day, and then about 80 kids get an additional 30-45 minutes a day for RtI.

My favorite was when I got 100 minutes a day.
