MAKING THE MOST OF THE MIX
The Many Benefits of Mixed Age Groupings
Although children are not born in litters, we seem to insist they be educated in them - Lilian Katz
In this session, Lisa discusses the findings of the paper she wrote on The Benefits of Mixed Age Groupings (MAGS) and shares her additional thoughts about the topic, strategies for success, potential challenges and other MAG considerations. By tapping into both historical (Lilian Katz) and contemporary (Peter Gray, among others) research and resources, this workshop presents a general overview of MAGS, some typical barriers to them, and ends with identifying specific social and intellectual benefits. Lisa will also be asking participants for their own experiences and concerns.
