This project presents research findings regarding multi-age education and practical ideas for the implementation of a multi-age approach to teaching and learning. This project grew out of a need in School District # 3 for a handbook outlining material on multi-age education. A committee was struck to draft policies, guidelines and procedures for multi-age classrooms within the District. The committee completed this task in draft form. This project is intended to support the work of the District committee and to be a resource for teachers interested in teaching in a multi-age setting. The data for this project was collected from four primary sources: a comprehensive review of literature, document analysis, surveys, as well as observations and personal experiences of the author. The surveys were developed and administered to teachers, principals and parents involved with multi-age education within the District. The results of these surveys confirm the research findings from prominent researchers as well as personal experiences of the author that indicate quite clearly the value of a multi-age approach to teaching and learning. Once compiled, the results of the surveys were incorporated into a multi-age handbook outlining research findings, implementation, and day-to-day practices for the use of teachers wishing to learn more about the multi-age approach to teaching and learning.
