In Search of Reality: Unraveling the Myths about Tracking, Ability Grouping and the Gifted.
Fiedler, Ellen D.; And Others
Roeper Review, v16 n1 p4-7 Sep 1993
This article addresses six myths often used to oppose ability grouping of gifted students. These concern distinctions between tracking and ability grouping; ability grouping and elitism; discrimination against racial and minority groups; gifted students' supposed lack of special needs; the effectiveness of cooperative learning for all students; and gifted students as role models.
