Cooper, David H.; Speece, Deborah L.
Exceptional Children, v57 n2 p117-26 Oct-Nov 1990
This study classified the characteristics of 103 at-risk first grade children and their classroom environments over a one- to four-year period. Found that individual seatwork as an instructional arrangement increased the risk of special placement, whereas small group work was associated with nonplacement for children with possible learning disabilities.
