Differentiation of Curriculum Practices and Teaching Methods in High Schools


by L. Thomas Hopkins 1936

Until recently junior and senior high schools made no distinction between the terms 'homogeneous' groupings and 'ability' groupings. They were used to mean any type of classification of students for the promotion of better learning in traditional subjects. Within the past three years a differentiated meaning between these terms has become current.
