Living once a week?

Some schools introduced
a 'Dalton Hour' once a week. This is a contradictio in terminis.

Dalton is a teaching method for the whole range of the educational
process in a school.
Helen Parkhurst said: "Dalton is a way of living".
The children in a Dalton school learn to take own initiatives,
to be responsible for their own learning. In Dalton schools we
train the attitude of independency and all pupils can use these
attitudes during their whole school life. Not only once a week.
Working wiith assignemnts once a week is called "project work".
