    In a multi-age classroom, students of different ages and skill levels may be given different roles in the classroom that match their varying levels of maturity and achievement. It's important to note that these roles, and the particular instruction students receive, may not necessarily correlate with their ages. With careful planning, student workbooks can be used just as effectively in a multi-age classroom as in a regular SRE classroom. To get the most out of them, it is important to spend some time at the beginning of each term making an overall term plan. For example, this year I am team teaching a multi-age SRE class with students from Year 1 to Author: Kaye Chalwell.

      Multiage-classroom organization is admittedly difficult to implement, because the tradition-bound inertia and bureaucratic complexity of many public schools does not easily provide for such flexibility. That said, I am interested in hearing about schools in which it has been adopted -- and about how well it works. Although I teach in a self-contained multiage classroom, I am able to team plan with two other intermediate multiage teachers. We have pooled our knowledge to come up with a successful reading program based on the use of children's literature and reading materials from the Kendall-Hunt Pegasus program. Our program is divided into three components: 1) Self-selected Reading, 2) Small Group.

    The multi-age classroom lends itself to skill grouping, as opposed to traditional ability grouping. This means that instead of having "high" and "low" reading or math groups, students who need to work on a given skill are grouped together while the skill is taught, and then regrouped when new skills are tackled. Multi-age classrooms or composite classes are classrooms with students from more than one grade level. They are created because of a pedagogical choice of a school or school district.
