Teaching and Learning in the Intermediate Multiage Classroom describes in practical detail a creative and effective teaching practice in multiage elementary classrooms, one that integrates challenging academics with personalized teaching and learning. Written by David Marshak, an educator who has studied multiage classrooms for over 12 years, and Alice Leeds, who has taught in multiage classrooms for over a decade, this book describes methods for teaching in this type of environment that provide a better form of education than the conventional age-graded classroom. Leeds and Marshak examine the benefits of multiage classrooms by exploring how such classrooms function and provide a detailed description of an individual unit designed to maximize the potential of this non-traditional form of intermediate education. By describing the benefits multiage classrooms provide in terms of personal, social, and academic achievement, plus outlining a process for teachers to become successful in this environment, this book is bound to interest administrators, teachers, and researchers in education.
