Burcham, Mildred, Ed.
The Oregon Small Schools Program, (an Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title III project) held a week-long institute in the summer of 1972 to demonstrate how construction can be individualized even with a large class load by organizing the curriculum and schedule so everyone can work at his own pace on meaningful projects. Given in this report are the major and concurrent presentations of the institute. Some of the major presentations dealt with topics such as the real challenge of individualized instruction, process learning, education in a changing world, new high school graduation requirements, and the input for planning. Some of the concurrent presentations given were on such topics as individualizing instruction in a small elementary school; individualized learning in practice; individualizing and humanizing science; the teacher's role in an individualized home economics program; scheduling and administrative organization; the retrieval-dissemination center; counseling in a small high school; individualized instruction in subjects such as language arts, mathematics, vocational business, and music; and scheduling for the improvement of instruction. A comprehensive account of the long-range plan for individualizing instruction in Oregon small schools is also given. (NQ)
