Record of an Effort at Future-Planning Through In-Service: Individualized Instruction in Tucson Public Schools, 1970-1971.
Bockman, John F., Comp.
This document describes a series of seminars held over a 2-year period to help plan for independent and individualized instruction. The first year seminars resulted in the conception of a 2-dimensional system into which all independent and individualized instructional programs could be fitted -- i.e., the means or media (the ways of getting to the objectives) and control (the determination of who sets the objectives.) The participants were polled for their chief concerns in the area of individualized and independent study, and a checklist of questions was developed from expressions of teacher concerns. Seven headings resulted that comprise an analysis of the management function and which were then used as the structure for the second seminar in 1971. Among these headings were the processes whereby students responsibly entered worthwhile independent study programs, new learning environments were created, new learning environments were sustained, guiding students became a cross-educator responsibility, and student and program strengths and weaknesses were responsibly evaluated. Provisions were made for modifying these processes when necessary. The papers submitted to the seminars are listed in an appendix. (Pages 33-35 may reproduce poorly.) (Author/MLF)
