An end to age-grouping in the classroom: Mary Esselman

"Imagine being a sixth grade teacher with students at fourteen different levels in your classroom"

When students are grouped by age, teachers must teach to every level of aptitude at once. Mary Esselman offers a bold solution: end grade-levels and group kids by skill and proficiency. In this talk, she shares her successes experimenting with this intensely personalized and differentiated education model. (Filmed at TEDxSarasota)
