Individualization: An Emergent Concept in Science Instruction.
Swartz, Clifford; Appel, Marilyn
These proceedings include abstracts of the formal papers presented during a conference in Philadelphia on December 8 and 9, 1967. The conference, sponsored by Research for Better Schools, Inc., was concerned with individualization of science instruction, particularly in elementary schools. Thirty-three scientists and science educators from various sections of the country contributed papers or discussion notes about theoretical and practical aspects of science instruction. The aim of the meeting was to exchange information about current attempts to teach science on an individualized basis, and to provide a center for the accumulation and dissemination of such information. The following papers are presented: "The Case for a Laboratory Approach to Individualized Instruction," Celia Lavatelli; "Learning Theory Applications to the Problem of Individualized Instruction in Science," David Ausubel; "Comments on the Content of the Science Program," Richard Harbeck; "Scientific Method," Michael Scriven; "Individually Prescribed Instruction in Science: The Oakleaf Project," W. Shepler and J. Cohen; "The Intermediate Science Curriculum Study," Ernest Burkman; "The Computer as an Aid to Individualized Instruction," Edward Adams; "Statement of the Role of Standardized Tests in Science Education," Lee Brown; and "The Application of the Continuous Progress Concept to the Natural Sciences in Higher Education," J. William Moore. (Author/TS)
