Individualization of Science Instruction in the Elementary School Laboratory.
Lipson, Joseph I.
After defining education, science, scientific concepts, individualization, and the sequence of science instruction, the individualizing effort (K-6) at the Learning Research and Development Center at the University of Pittsburgh is examined in this speech. This effort is described in detail in relation to a science instruction project which emphasizes the use of educational technology and direct laboratory experience in conjunction with lesson units, pretests, performance tests, and an individualized progression rate. Within the science program, student entrance into the program, procedures for advancing through the program, and plans for evaluating the program are more fully explicated. (SP)
