Classrooms today are far more diverse than
heretofore, both nationally and locally. Students formerly in Resource Rooms
and Gifted Centers are now integrated into the mainstream; which has
undergone pressures to detrack. Our knowledge of how people learn has taught
us about multiple variations in what works for individual students. In
addition, our schools are now undergoing a dramatic demographic change with
an influx of students who are learning to speak and read English.
