IPI Science: A Teaching Revolution in the Making, Reprint 51.
Klopfer, Leopold E.; Weber, Victor L., Jr.
This is a report of the science program under development by the Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) project. IPI is developing several elementary curricula (e.g. reading, mathematics) as well as science, and all are characterized by six IPI individualization goals: (a) every student makes regular progress towards mastery of instructional content; (b) every student proceeds to mastery of instructional content at an optimal rate; (c) every student is engaged in the learning process through active involvement; (d) the student is involved in learning activities that are wholly or partially self-directed and self-selected; (e) the student plays a major role in evaluating the quality, extent, and rapidity of his progress towards mastery of successive areas of the learning continuum; (f) different students work with different learning materials and techniques of instruction adapted to individual needs and learning styles. In addition to these individualization goals, the following three goals further delineate the purpose of IPI Science: (a) every student develops positive attitudes toward science and scientist; (b) every student becomes skillful in using the processes of scientific inquiry; (c) every student acquires a foundation of scientific literacy.
