Multi-Age

Walden School has several multi-age classrooms. I thought it would be useful to have a place to share information on multi-age education. There are way too many links on the following sites for me to explore on my own. Add comments about what you find most useful.

One of the better sites (though the page layout is a bit busy for my taste) is Multiage-Education.Com. The Multiage Kids page has lots of links to information that may be of interest to kids in & outside the classroom. Other pages likely to be of interest follow. The Nuts & Bolts page ‘features the “how-to’s” of setting up and running a successful multiage classroom.’ The Schools & Classrooms page has links to schools around the world. The Multiage Links page has links to Teacher-to-Teacher sites, research sites, and more.

I also liked the site Choosing Multiage, created by Marion Leier, a long-time teacher in Nova Scotia. Lots of links and downloadable files in the Resources section.

Another good Multiage Education site has ads that are a bit annoying, but the information seems useful. Be sure to explore the scroll-down menu on the left side of the site, particularly the “Additional Information …” page.

Manitoba, Canada seems to be doing lots of interesting work on improving education. Their Independent Together page has lots more depth than there seems at first. Explore the green-background links on the left.

Some sites with less depth include

The teachers.net site has a Multiage Classroom Chatboard that might be a place to ask questions of others.

Please add comments if you find things you have found interesting, or that you think others will appreciate.
