Synopsis

Creating Nongraded K-3 Classrooms Teachers' Stories and Lessons Learned by Ric A. Hovda, Diane W. Kyle, Ellen McIntyre

Many schools in the United States are considering moving from traditional, skill-based instruction to child-centred instruction in nongraded, primary classrooms. This book describes nongraded, primary programmes that illustrate developmentally appropriate practices for teaching young children. Seven critical attributes to these programmes are examined including multiage/multiability grouping, professional teamwork, positive parental involvement and authentic assessment.
