    :s) I prefer heterogenous classes but differentiated instruction within the class. I totally agree that research supports differentiation, but I always took that to mean within a single classroom with a heterogenous mix of students.

    :s) maryteach,
    do you think students should be sorted into ablility groups and placed in different classrooms, or are you talking about the kind of flexible grouping (Fountas and Pinnell style) within your own classroom?

    I guess I just don't see how groups (or tracks or whatever) could be fluid or flexible, with students moving in and/or out of a group, if students are placed in different classrooms. I think on paper it could say students could move up or down, but I think in reality a student could just be stuck. :(
