INDIVIDUALIZING INSTRUCTION IN SMALL SCHOOLS.
Western States Small Schools Project, Salt Lake City, UT.
THIS DOCUMENT DISCUSSES PROCEDURES AND POTENTIALS FOR INDIVIDUALIZING INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS IN SMALL RURAL SCHOOLS. FOUR FACTORS ARE SEEN TO BE OPERANT IN THE INDIVIDUALIZATION PROCESS. THESE ARE THE INSTRUCTOR, THE CURRICULUM AND SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIALS, ADMINISTRATIVE PRACTICE, AND PHYSICAL FACILITIES. NEW INSTRUCTIONAL PROCEDURES SHOULD BE INSTITUTED WITH A CONCOMITANT REDEFINITION OF THE ROLE OF THE TEACHER. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT THE CURRICULUM BE REORGANIZED INTO A COMMON CURRICULUM TO BE TAKEN BY EVERY STUDENT, AN ALTERNATIVE CURRICULUM TO MEET THE NEEDS OF LOCAL ECONOMIC SITUATIONS, AND AN INDIVIDUAL CURRICULUM TO PROVIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR SPECIAL SKILLS AND TALENTS. SUGGESTIONS FOR ADMINISTRATIVE REORGANIZATION TO PROVIDE FOR INDIVIDUAL DIFFERENCES ARE INCLUDED. IDEAS FOR MODIFICATION OF EXISTING FACILITIES AND CONSTRUCTION OF NEW PHYSICAL STRUCTURES ARE PRESENTED. FREE COPIES OF THIS DOCUMENT ARE ALSO AVAILABLE FORM THE WSSP COORDINATIOR, SUITE 1300 UNIVERSITY CLUB BUILDING, 136 EAST SOUTH TEMPLE, SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH 84111. (JM)
