dc.description.abstract In order to create a cooperative group of critical thinkers and independent learners, researchers have shifted from the use of traditional modes of education and scheduling system in the elementary schools to innovative modes of teaching and scheduling such as curriculum integration and block scheduling. Block scheduling is ideal for integrated learning. Its influence on the elementary classrooms has for long become an essential topic to be studied and observed. This case study was based on two fundamental research questions: 1) what are the benefits and drawbacks of block scheduling and integration? 2) How can block scheduling and integration affect teachers' instructional methods and students' motivation? Regarding block scheduling and integration, data were collected by semi strnctured interviews with the school principal and the vice principal of the case study, classroom observations, and questionnaires administered to the elementary school teachers, coordinators, one vice principal, and the school principal. The main objective behind this research was to discern the outcome which the implementation of integration and block scheduling in a private school in Lebanon has left on the learners' incentive to acquire new concepts and enhance the teachers' methods of teaching. This case study has revealed the benefits and drawbacks of implementing integration and block scheduling and suggested innovative ways for the reform of school scheduling and teaching approaches. en_US
