The Psychological and Pedagogical Bases for Individualized Reading.
Hunt, Lyman C., Jr.
The two concepts of individualized instruction in reading, prescriptive individualized instruction (IPI) and the individualized reading program (IRP), differ in the nature of their structures. The IPI program involves a progressive sequence of learning tasks which are accomplished at an individual's own rate. The IRP involves exploration and individually determined direction and goals as well as individual rate. The success of an individualized reading program depends on the success of six steps in the program: (1) a classroom environment for productive reading, (2) silent or quiet reading time, (3) instructional guidance including noninterference, (4) book talks and conferences, (5) uninterrupted sustained silent reading practice, and (6) record keeping and evaluation. How each of these steps can be accomplished by the classroom teacher is discussed. (AL)
