Multiage Classrooms: A New Way to Learn Math.
Dever, Martha Taylor; And Others
Principal, v73 n4 p22,24,26 Mar 1994
Recent research supports Vygotsky's "zone of proximal development" theory; children receiving peer assistance can stretch their learning beyond their individual accomplishment. A study of a multiage classroom revealed three strategies used by children working together to solve math problems--modeling, tutoring, and pairing/sharing activities. The multiage setting invites collaboration and sharing, while helping students meet mathematics learning standards. (MLH)
