Individualizing Educational Systems; The Elementary and Secondary School Implications for Curriculum, Professional Staff and Students.
Bishop, Lloyd K.
The purpose of this book is to present the major methods and strategies employed by elementary and secondary schools during the past decade for enhancing the individualization of instruction. The concept of individualization is treated in a broad context. Program descriptions and techniques are described encompassing topics such as individualization of instructional programs with an emphasis on the major techniques and methods, individualization of instruction with applications drawn from innovative elementary and secondary school programs, emphasis on the student as a major force in the educational system, and emergent professional and organizational patterns with emphasis on the role of the teacher in instructional decision making. The presentations and descriptions focus on the development of specific programs and materials, organizational and professional models within elementary and secondary schools, contemporary educational facilities required for individualizing instruction, and the student as a co-participant in the educational process.
