Individualized Science - Like It Is.
Triezenberg, Henry J., Ed.
Seven articles concerning individualized science education are compiled in this publication which begins with a brief introduction to the concept of individual differences. Representative projects on both elementary and secondary school levels are included to illustrate different degrees of structure and styles of individualization. Discussions of the individualized learning approaches are grouped under these headings: Audio-Tutorial Techniques, The Intermediate Science Curriculum Study, Open Learning Environments: The Ultimate Individualization, PACE - Personalized Adventures in Chemical Education, Audio-Tutorial Learning, and Individualizing Your Own Classroom. Emphases are placed on analyses of variables such as learner's selection of direction, sources, paces, and evaluation. Differences between independent and individualized learning are emphasized in an article entitled: "Individuals Learn." Included in the appendices are two bibliographies. One is concerned with research studies related to open humane education and the other with humanistically-oriented education. (CC)
