Jensen, Melanie K.; Green, Virginia P.
Early Child Development and Care, v91 p25-31 1993
This literature review on the effects of multiage groupings (MAGs) in the primary grades supports their use and argues that children in MAGs perform as well academically as children in single-age groupings (SAGs) and develop better self-concept and school attitudes than children in SAGs. Expresses concerns over lack of training and support for teachers of MAGs. (MDM)
