    Ina -
    Look into the Program for Complex Instruction at the following web site

    They have specific strategies for including ALL students in Cooperative
    Learning group situations. We are piloting the project here in Vermont in
    some elementary and middle school math and science classrooms, and teachers
    are very positive about both the theory and application.

    A primary focus is on student "status" as it relates to participation in
    hands-on work. Teachers are taught how to read status, how to affect it,
    and how to design lessons that call on the many abilities that a diverse
    group of students has to offer.

    AND, it is a well-researched program that has demonstrated learning gains
    for ALL students, with the largest gains being made by those who had
    traditionally underperformed.
