Multi-age Education: An Introduction
Format: World Wide Web
"Multiage Education: An introduction" provides an introduction to the history, theory, and practice of multiage education. Starting with thebone-room school, the first form of multiage education, the course traces the development of educators` interest in the pedagogical potential and possibilities of learning environments in which students of different age levels are grouped for instruction. Students will have the opportunity to examine the growing body of multiage research and literature (local, national, international), as well as theoretical perspectives on how children learn and develop which lend support to multiage learning environments. The course will be of interest to rural educators where such learning environments are usually created out of necessity (often referred as multi-grade classrooms) and urban educators interested in alternatives to the graded school.
