Considerable debate among educators has centered on what kinds of academic structures can best accommodate mildly academically handicapped students, considering their particular needs in terms of self esteem, academic progress, and interpersonal relationships with nonhandicapped students. This paper examines the effects of mainstreaming compared to separate, special classes for academically handicapped students and address the question of what kinds of regular class structures can best provide for the needs of mainstreamed mildly academically handicapped students, while, at the same time, meeting the needs of normal and high ability students. In particular, this paper will examine how one structure, cooperative learning, can help to meet the diverse needs of students in the mainstreamed classroom.
