IPI Science: A Teaching Revolution in the Making.
Klopfer, Leopold E.; Weber, Victor L., Jr.
Science Activities, v1 p27-30 June 1969
Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) represents a significant innovation in education because it is one of the first successful operations of individualized instruction on a systematic basis throughout an entire school from kindergarten through sixth grade. The aim of IPI is to have the student regularly experience successful learning so that he will readily form favorable attitudes toward the learning environment, and develop a positive outlook on educational challenges that he must confront in further schooling and in his future life. This report lists the goals of the IPI program and discusses in more detail the IPI science program that is used at present in kindergarten and grades 1-3. (JY)
