Summary

This paper examines research on classroom programs for elementary school students who are at risk for learning problems. The full range of alternative classroom organization models designed to meet the needs of low-achieving or heterogeneous classes is explored in an attempt to discover which type of program is most effective and why. The goal of this study is to determine how the education needs of all students can be met by fundamentally restructuring the regular classroom, as opposed to adding on services outside of the regular classroom. Therefore this review focuses on the specific, comprehensive programs beneficial to the achievement of students who are at risk and that are replicable at other schools. Research demonstrates that effective classroom programs accommodate instruction to individual needs while maximizing direct instruction, and assess student progress frequently through a structured hierarchy of skills. Two categories of programs emerged as particularly effective: continuous progress and cooperative learning. An extensive list of references is included. Descriptions of several types of successful programs are appended. (PS)
