THE PROJECT FOR INDIVIDUALLY PRESCRIBED INSTRUCTION. THE OAKLEAF PROJECT.
BOLVIN, JOHN; LINDVALL, C.M.
THE OAKLEAF PROJECT WAS A COOPERATIVE STUDY OF THE PROBLEMS INVOLVED IN MAKING PROVISION FOR INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF REGULAR SCHOOL OPERATIONS. THE OAKLEAF ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN SUBURBAN PITTSBURGH WAS USED AS A LABORATORY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT AND TRIAL OF A PROGRAM FOR INDIVIDUALLY PRESCRIBED INSTRUCTION (IPI). THE IPI PROCEDURE CONSISTED OF ANALYSES OF PUPIL PROGRESS AT CERTAIN SEQUENTIAL STEPS IN LEARNING AND THE DEVELOPMENT OF PERSONAL PRESCRIPTIONS TO SPECIFY THE LEARNING EXPERIENCES REQUIRED TO MEET THE INDIVIDUAL NEEDS OF EACH STUDENT. STUDENTS PARTICIPATED IN THE IPI PROGRAM FOR LESS THAN ONE-HALF HOUR EACH SCHOOL DAY. DURING THE REST OF THE DAY, THE STUDENTS ENGAGED IN STUDY IN THE CONVENTIONAL MANNER. THREE BASIC CONTENT AREAS WERE USED WITH THE PROGRAM--READING, MATHEMATICS, AND SCIENCE. AT THE TIME OF THIS REPORT, THE STUDY EFFORT WAS STILL IN PROGRESS AND NO CONCLUSIONS WERE PRESENTED. POSSIBLE RESEARCH STUDIES TO BE UNDERTAKEN IN THE FUTURE AS PART OF THIS CONTINUING PROJECT WERE OUTLINED. RELATED REPORTS ARE ED 010 205 THROUGH ED 010 211 AND ED 010 519 THROUGH ED 010 523. (JH)
