The Social Construction of Ability and Disability: II. Optimal and At-Risk Lessons in a Bilingual Special Education Classroom.
Ruiz, Nadeen T.
Journal of Learning Disabilities, v28 n8 p491-502 Oct 1995
Bilingual students' language and literacy skills were compared across three classroom events (varying in degree of formality) in a special classroom for students with language learning disabilities. Results showed that certain contextual features (usually holistic-constructivist in nature) were associated with enhanced student performance, whereas others (often with reductionist features) led to communicative breakdowns.
