Why Does Multiage Make Sense? Compelling Arguments for Educational Change.
Kasten, Wendy C.
Primary Voices K-6, v6 n2 p2-9 Apr 1998
Discusses the overwhelmingly positive evidence from experience and research which suggests that a multiage environment can be superior to one of age-segregated class levels. Illuminates the logic of educating students in mixed-age groups (called multiage) by discussing the academic and social advantages, the affective benefits, and the positive impact on both promotion and long-term educational goals.
