Crossing the Tracks by Anne Wheelock

Book Description

One of the hottest controversies in educational circles today involves the practice of "tracking", or grouping students by ability, beginning in the early grades. Strongly endorsed by both educators and policy makers, this work is a survey of schools throughout the country that have successfully "crossed the tracks" and reintegrated their classrooms. Wheelock documents real-life experiences of schools as they reduce or eliminate ability grouping and strive to offer superior learning environments to all students. With chapters on parental involvement, teacher training, curriculum reform, student aspirations and specific examples of programs and practices that have been tried - successfully and unsuccessfully - across the nation, this text outlines a specific course of action for parents, teachers, administrators, and others ready to join the "untracking" movement.
