The purpose of this composition is to help teachers obtain a better understanding of the management of rooms which include more than one grade. This is a problem that small one and two teacher schools have faced for many decades and with recent increased enrollments, has carried over to large city schools as well. This type of situation presents unique managerial problems. Perhaps teachers with the help of background reading will not fall into some of the pitfalls that tend to be so prevalent in this area. It is hoped that this paper will prove beneficial to teachers in this situation, whose work is so difficult and yet, so interesting.
