An Observational Study of Peer Interaction in Racially Mixed "Accelerated" Classrooms.
Schofield, Janet Ward; Francis, William D.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v74 n5 p722-32 Oct 1982
The amount and type of peer interaction occuring in four racially mixed eighth grade classrooms were explored. Analysis of the interactions suggested that cross-race interactions of all groups were more task-related than within-race interactions. In turn, within-race interactions were more social than cross-race interactions. (Author/PN)
