Media Centers and Individualized Instruction Programs in Selected Elementary Schools in Connecticut.
Stryer, Andrea
A study was devised to investigate how media centers function within individualized instructional programs at selected elementary schools in Connecticut and to evaluate those media centers in relation to their school programs according to criteria developed by leaders in the field. Results of questionnaires showed 1) a relationship exists between the presence of a subject specialist on a school staff and the extent to which individualized instruction is used in that subject; 2) many of the schools are not using the more individualized methods for learning; 3) the selected media centers' staffing and number of activities provided usually do not meet standards; 4) there is not as wide a range of media nor as flexible circulation as is recommended; 5) budgets and services are below recommended standards; and 6) media centers are more involved in schools which have strong individualized instructional programs. Primary areas of need which were identified by the media specialists questioned included increased media collection, center expansion, and increased professional and clerical personnel. (Author/SH)
