FOUR CASE STUDIES OF PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION.
SCHRAMM, WILBUR; AND OTHERS
SEVERAL SCHOLARS, KNOWLEDGEABLE BOTH ABOUT SCHOOLS AND PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION, WERE ASKED TO LOOK AT A SCHOOL OR A SCHOOL SYSTEM WHERE PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION WAS IN USE, AND REPORT ON IT. SPECIFIC QUESTIONS POSED WERE--(1) WHAT HAD CERTAIN SCHOOLS DONE WITH PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION, (2) WHAT WERE THEIR REACTIONS TO THE EXPERIENCE, (3) WHAT PROBLEMS HAD THEY FOUND IN PUTTING THE METHOD INTO EFFECTIVE USE, AND (4) WHAT IS THE PRESENT OUTLOOK FOR PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION IN THE SCHOOLS. FOUR CASE STUDIES DEALING WITH THESE QUESTIONS ARE IN THIS REPORT--(1) PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION IN THE MANHASSET JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL, (2) PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION IN DENVER, (3) EXPERIENCES WITH PROGRAMED MATERIALS IN THE CHICAGO AREA, AND (4) PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION IN A "CONTINUOUS PROGRESS" SCHOOL IN PROVO, UTAH. IN ADDITION TO AN INTRODUCTION BY WILBUR SCHRAMM, THERE IS A REPRODUCTION OF PART OF SCHRAMM'S EARLIER BOOK, "PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION TODAY AND TOMORROW," PUBLISHED BY THE FUND FOR ADVANCEMENT OF EDUCATION IN NOVEMBER 1962. SUGGESTIONS FOR FURTHER READING WERE ALSO INCLUDED. (JC)
