A Handbook for Teachers of Multi-Grade Classes. Improving Performance at the Primary Level
This handbook is designed to help in dealing with the day-today problems that multi-grade teachers face. As these schools often serve defined communities and most times there is little support from the government, emphasis is given to the need to develop close partnerships between the school and the community. It does not replace teacher training, but is intended to supplement formal training. (Adapted text from source: Preface)
The goal of this handbook is to suggest strategies, which will be helpful in managing and teaching multi-grade classes. It provides suggestions on how to modify and adapt the national curriculum, in order to meet local priorities and needs, arrange the classroom to accommodate different learning levels, organize relevant learning experiences, identify and obtain any teaching aids available in the local environment, keep careful records and monitor and evaluate students’ progress.
