Ms. Martin teaches eighth-grade history to an academically diverse class. DeMarcus is a gifted student who has always earned high marks. Joe has a learning disability. Ms. Martin does not believe it would be fair to expect the same performance from Joe as from DeMarcus. However, she knows that Joe can learn the material with proper scaffolding. Because of this, she seats Joe near her desk, praises him when he does something well, and gives him constructive criticism when needed. How are her expectations and behavior likely to affect the achievement of these students?

b. Her expectations are likely to result in high achievement from DeMarcus and fairly high achievement from Joe.

c. Her expectations are likely to result in high achievement from Joe and low achievement from DeMarcus.
