Physics Just for Fun--An Individualized Course Using Harvard Project Physics.
Payne, John G.
The development of an individualized course at Plano High School, Texas, is described. The first attempt, using only suggested guidelines, was considered unsuccessful. The second structure adopted included: (1) specific, measurable behavioral objectives, (2) both basic and advanced required assignments, (3) tests to measure achievement of the objectives, (4) lists of school resources, and (5) a time table for minimum satisfactory progress. Advantages to the student, teacher and administration are listed along with a discussion of several problems. The present approach involves the class progressing through the course at a single pace prescribed by the teacher. Some time for independent work allows for different levels of performance within this framework. (Author/TS)
