Behavior Patterns of Mildly Retarded Children in Open Classrooms

Children with disabilities, Developmentally disabled children, Inclusive education, People with disabilities

See More

Abstract/Notes: The classroom behavior and academic achievement of 32 educable retarded children (EMR) with a mean age of 11.24 years were studied in two types of open classrooms, graded and multi-age, and compared to that in a special education class. The three different instructional environments were found to generate characteristically different patterns of classroom behavior over a four-month interval as measured by time-sampling procedures. The results generally supported the assumption that open-space, integrated classrooms facilitate greater social interaction on the part of EMR students. The frequency of task-relevant behavior was higher in the special education class compared to that found in the two open classrooms. All three groups of EMR children made comparable gains in academic achievement. (Author)

An Analysis of Verbal Interaction in Multiage Classrooms

See More

Abstract/Notes: The purpose of this study was to analyze the verbal interactions of children assigned to multiage classrooms. Specifically, the study investigated whether children of a particular age group interact with other children across age groups and the types of interactions each age group display. It also investigated student-to-teacher interactions and student-to-student interactions to see if interactions initiated by children are dispersed across age groups. An interaction in this study is defined as a verbal exchange between two children or between a child and the teacher. Groups studied consisted of classrooms containing children of two ages (e.g., six- and seven-year-olds) and groups containing children of three ages (e.g., eight-, nine-, and ten-year-olds). When three ages were combined in a classroom, the older children tended to dominate the conversation directed to other children in the class. This tendency was not present when two ages were combined. Combining children of

The Multiage Classroom: A Collection

See More

Abstract/Notes: Noting that the recent call for holistic models of schooling dictates a thorough investigation of more natural groupings of students, this collection of articles reviews available literature on multiage, nongraded, continuous progress classrooms. Divided into six sections, the chapters explore the overriding concerns and the pros and cons of such instruction, delineate the procedures and practices associated with multiage instruction, illustrate actual classroom practice, and examine issues of evaluation and accountability in such classrooms. The chapters are: (1) "The First 30 Years Were the Fairest" (Connell), tracing the history of schooling from Sputnik to the late 1980s; (2) "The Dual-Age Classroom: Questions and Answers" (Woelfel); (3) "The Return of the Nongraded Classroom" (Anderson); (4) "The Pros and Cons of Mixed-Age Grouping (Lodish); (5) "On the Merits of Multiage Classrooms" (Pratt); (6) "A Study of Multi-Age or Family-Grouped Classrooms" (Milburn); (7) "The Benefits
