Smile on Your Brother: Teaching Siblings Together
Carter, Paula
Young Children, v63 n5 p18-20, 23 Sep 2008
A multiage first, second, and third grade classroom includes brothers, sisters, cousins. Two teachers use a developmentally appropriate approach while juggling teaching responsibilities and administering the many tests required by No Child Left Behind. Carter explains their four priorities for children: attendance, responsibility, honesty, and reading achievement and describes classroom family relations can work to the children's advantage.
