An Observational Study of Small-Group Instruction in Fourth-Grade Mathematics Classrooms.
Gerleman, Sherry L.
Elementary School Journal, v88 n1 p3-28 Sep 1987
Describes several facets of small-group instruction including teacher, group, and individual behaviors and use of time. Observational data were supplemented by teacher interviews concerning student groupings. Grouping practice appeared to result from decisions teachers made primarily on the basis of three factors: the teacher, the students, and the content taught.(NH)
