Multiage Instruction and Inclusion: A Collaborative Approach
Stuart, Shannon K.; Connor, Mary; Cady, Karin; Zweifel, Alicia
International Journal of Whole Schooling, v3 n1 p12-26 Mar 2007
This article describes a multiage classroom led by three co-teachers who facilitate the education of 42 students ages six through nine years. The classroom is located in a public school district that practices inclusion and subscribes to the principles of whole schooling. A literature review defines the concepts of co-teaching, multiage education, and inclusion and demonstrates how the co-teachers practice the principles of whole schooling. A rich description of the classroom follows so that the reader may fully understand how to implement similar teaching strategies. Implications for practice are discussed. (Contains 2 tables.)
