Twenty-five sixth graders are working in a classroom, with several different groups involved in a plethora of activities. A large group is working on software that is displayed on a big-screen monitor which has been hooked up to a computer via a coaxial cable, another group is working on a worksheet generated from a computer, still another group is being helped by the teacher, and the remaining individuals are independently working. Every single student is involved and interested. Learning is taking place. Half the children are black and the other half are mostly white. This is the type of classroom that teachers envisioned for the future while in college. The kind that teachers can look around the room and feel proud of what is going on, feel good that they are part of it, and responsible for it.
