Free Way to Learning: Educational Alternatives in Action

See More

Abstract/Notes: Is school really deaad? It seems not. So does our present system offer all there is to know about enabling children to learn of themselves, their worlds, their possibilities? 'Free Way to Learning' is put together by a number of people who think not. IN different ways they have created learning stiuations which break down established ideas about teacher authority, about compulsory learning, about how the process of education can change society. Separately the have: established an urban free school, developed a small rural community, operated a family learning network, offered an inner-city supplementary programme, and participated in the rise of a street school. Together they testify to the challenges, problems and, above all, the excitement encountered by those who attempt to do it a new way - a free way.

Multi-Age Grouping: Enriching the Learning Environment

Available from: ERIC

See More

Abstract/Notes: Heterogeneous mixtures of children occur naturally in play and in many school activities, for example, student council meetings, clubs, and social affairs. These activities demand the variety of ages, talents, interests, and experiences represented by the whole range of students in a school. It is questioned whether academic activities would not also be greatly enhanced by the contributions of, and cooperation among, a heterogeneous group of students learning together. The American school system at present generally organizes students into classes according to age. Because of the abundant research demonstrating the vast differences in ability and rate of development within any one age group, it is argued in this pamphlet that it is perhaps highly artificial to organize classrooms by age alone. The study committee responsible for the content of this pamphlet investigated both the theory and practice of multi-age grouping. In multi-age grouping, children are grouped randomly with no particular consideration of age or ability, although it is recognized that not all areas of study are amenable to such grouping. But for those subjects like art, creative writing, and discussion periods, in which varied levels of maturity, perspective, and experience can contribute more to the learning process, the learning process will be more likely enriched by a greater heterogeneity of pupils. Heterogeneous interaction of age groups contributes to social growth and understanding as well as to academic growth. OCLC: http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/301385001
