What Vocational Education Teachers Should Know About Individualizing Instruction.
Teachers are increasingly becoming managers of the learning process rather than dispensers of knowledge and are being challenged to individualize their instruction to account for variability. Classroom objectives, characteristics of the learner, and the learning process are the focal points of this publication. Although there will continue to be considerable trial and error in individualizing instruction, the vocational teacher can use the following general guidelines: (1) The task to be learned should be divided into components which can be accomplished by the learner, (2) The instructional program should begin at a point commensurate with the learner's capabilities and prior knowledge, and (3) Principles by which individuals learn should be used in planning and selecting individualized instruction.
