This qualitative study examined general education teachers' beliefs and attitudes about current mainstreaming practices. Data were collected using three methods: focus groups, individual interviews, and classroom observations. The following research questions were the basis for the interviews and observations: (1) What are teachers' beliefs and attitudes toward mainstreaming? (2) To what extent are these beliefs and attitudes congruent with their practices? and (3) To what extent are teachers' practices consistent with recommended practices for effective teaching? Data from the focus groups, individual interviews, and classroom observations were compared for consistency in the teachers' reported beliefs and attitudes.them smiled when they saw the glue and paper on the tables. aGlue!a one girl exclaimed as she ran over to her assigned table.
