Multiage Classrooms

I used to work at a school with several multi-age classrooms. I gathered the following links for the teachers there. This information used to be a page all its own.

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


About Sigurd

Moved to rural Vermont in 1998, recently semi-retired. Intellect-oriented person (I spend a lot of time in my mind, have worked to broaden, regularly, the boundaries of what I pay attention to). One of my current interests is Goethe's approach to understanding the structures of the world (Science) and how it is different from Newton's approach. Goethe tried to stay open to what more the world might tell him of its nature, whereas Newton conceived frameworks that them became a window through which nature is viewed and understood.
