Penelle Chase and Jane Doan are convinced that multiage groups provide the ideal context for learning. In Full Circle they describe their classroom, discuss both the philosophy and practicality of multiage grouping, trace the history of the multiage concept, and illustrate how multiage principles have been adapted to address the needs of learners today.
Full Circle also includes others' perspectives which educators and parents can use as a background for implementing multiage programs to fit the needs of their own communities. A diverse group of practitioners from across the United States contributes chapters about their experiences with multiage education in various settings. The book concludes with an in-depth review of the literature on multiage groups.
