Preparing and Using Individualized Learning Packages for Ungraded, Continuous Progress Education.
Kapfer, Philip G.; Ovard, Glen F.
An Individualized Learning Package (ILP) is a method for translating traditional curriculum guides and teacher lesson plans into an individualized set of student lesson plans which permit each student to progress continually through the curriculum at his own optimum rate. An ILP offers alternative ways of achieving stated behavioral objectives and allows students to help plan their own learning strategies. The teacher using an ILP becomes less of a lecturer and more of a guide and manager for a total environment for learning. A typical ILP consists of a concept statement for the entire ILP, a list of the sub-concept statements, a list of learning objectives, instructions concerning a pretest which covers all the learning objectives, one or more lessons into which the sub-concepts or learning objectives may be divided, instructions concerning a posttest which covers all the learning objectives, and suggestions for pursuing the subject presented in the ILP in greater breadth or depth. This guide contains an instructional program intended to teach teachers to construct their own ILPs. It presents its materials in the form of nine ILPs, and is constructed so that it may be used as a textbook in a course or as a self-teaching tool. (JY)
