Dilemmas of Peer Assistance in a Bilingual Full Inclusion Classroom.
Beaumont, Carol J.
Elementary School Journal, v99 n3 p233-54 Jan 1999
An ethnographic study in a second-grade full-inclusion classroom examined spontaneous, unstructured peer-assistance interactions between 22 general education and 11 special education students during small-group and independent work periods. Found that helping exchanges in academic contexts were complicated by students' social agendas: desire to achieve mastery, display competence, establish themselves in the classroom social network, and save face.
