Teachers' Grouping Practices in Fifth-Grade Science Classrooms.
Webb, Noreen M.; Baxter, Gail P.; Thompson, Laurie
Elementary School Journal, v98 n2 p91-113 Nov 1997
Examined fifth-grade teachers' grouping practices for hands-on science instruction. Found that teachers tended to form heterogeneous groups in relation to the composition of their classrooms, whereas students tended to form homogeneous groups with respect to gender, ethnicity, and achievement. Some classroom compositions severely constrained grouping options. Teachers' stated grouping practices did not always correspond to observations. (Author/KB)
