Individualization of Instruction for Teacher Corpsmen.
Sorber, Evan R.
This preparation of the Temple-Philadelphia-Trenton Teacher Corps Program describes the use of the resources which are available to most colleges, universities, school systems, and communities to achieve the goals of technology in education--individualization and humanization. Staff deployment and characteristics (including intensity and diversity of involvement, ability to work as a team, knowledge, ability to communicate, and respect for individuality) are presented. The major portion of the report is a description of training techniques for individualizing learning. The first emphasizes the contract system (in which the student contracts with his teacher to make a study in a field chosen by the student) which involves a chance for students to study relevant problems, relates to democratic interaction, improves self-initiation, emphasizes cooperation, and gives the student stature as a person with rights and feelings. Another technique emphasizes individual experiences in school and community, a program in which the needs and individual skills of interns are diagnosed and structured into a system for involving students in the community. In addition, brief reports of the other techniques used in the program are provided, such as a human relations training laboratory, microteaching, and the use of individual team leader and intern skills. A 13-item bibliography is included. (SM)
