Group work in education; Gifted children -- Education;


In today's educational community, several "buzz" words surface dally ln the layperson's journals. Some of the terms are curriculum-based measurement (taking basal texts and devising a measurement tool to evaluate one school district's students>, global education (taking into consideration the need to address skills which will enable students to fit into the world marketplace), whole-language (incorporating all language arts skills along with the chosen reading texts or stories into the total curriculum), grouping (placing students in homogeneous groups to teach them a skill), and cooperative learning. The last term is not new, however. It has been present for many years, but it seems to be enjoying a resurgence in the contemporary classroom. With the new stress on "banning" ability grouping, cooperative learning ls viewed as a way to fill this void.
