A Planning Format for Classroom Teachers to Develop Instructional Modules as a Means of Individualizing Instruction.
Gabrys, Robert E.
This paper focuses on individualizing instruction as it relates to the diagnosis of the needs of individual learners and the development of appropriate instructional activities to meet these needs. A format is presented for assisting teachers in the process of personalizing instruction in an effort to optimize the learning environment for each pupil. Twelve components of this process are defined and discussed: statement of general topic, specification of content area, rationale, learner outcomes, prerequisites, preassessment, learning activities, post-assessment, remediation and/or enrichment, duration, resources needed and available, and physical arrangement. No statistical research analysis has been conducted on the effectiveness of the format; but it has face validity based upon the comments of some 250 teachers who, over a five-year period, have studied the model, and utilized it in developing and implementing real lessons.
