Choury, Elmer C.
The project described here is designed to measure the effectiveness of an intensive attempt at totally individualizing instruction to upgrade instructional programs in two elementary schools with the highest concentration of disadvantaged students in the county. The goal of the project is to achieve a system which will allow each student to progress at his own pace, teach him greater self-reliance and autonomy, provide him with a more conducive environment for enriching experiences, and aid him in developing a healthy self-concept. It is hoped that these aims will be achieved through multi-age grouping, team teaching, flexible scheduling, programed learning activities, and non-grading. (GO)
