Communication Arts: Individualization through Curriculum, Content, and the Small Group.
California English Journal, v5 n3 p27-30 Oct 1969
Efforts to individualize the secondary school English curriculum (Poway High School, California) have led to the development of a program of approximately 20 non-graded courses in literature, language, and composition which allows students to choose their own courses and to make decisions about content, structure, and methods of evaluation in a personalized learning environment. Small student-centered discussion groups, flexible scheduling, and an open curriculum with no pre-set list of requirements place the students at the center of the learning experience and develop their listening, speaking, reading, writing, and thinking skills. The teacher becomes a resource person who guides individualized learning and promotes communication. (JM)
