Classroom Organization for Diversity among Students


by Susan B. Stainback & William C. Stainback 1989

We need integrated schools where students of different abilities, disabilities, and racial and socioeconomic backgrounds can learn and play side by side. The issue for these professionals is not whether heterogeneous or homogeneous grouping is best, but rather how heterogeneous classrooms can be made to work to the advantage of all students in their academic, social, and emotional development.
