Gersten, Russell; Baker, Scott
Exceptional Children, v65 n1 p23-35 Fall 1998
Presents a conceptual framework for teaching science to students with disabilities.

Implications for policy, professional development, and creation of learning environments that promote retention and transfer are discussed. (Author/DB)
