Approaches to Individualized Instruction.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of Business Education.
With the focus now on career education as a catalyst for producing self-sufficient and personally self-fulfilled human beings, efforts are being made to develop teaching techniques which will produce effective learning in the great percentage of the student body enrolled. This document explores some of the more widely used approaches to individualizing instruction in business education in secondary schools. These approaches are: (1) the systems approach, (2) mini-approach (using learning packets), (3) flexible-scheduling approach, (4) learning activity-centered approach, (5) quantitative-timing approach (used in teaching typing), (6) independent study, (7) self-paced instructional approach, (8) team-teaching approach, (9) problem-centered approach, (10) accelerated-program approach, and (11) integrated-activity approach. In addition, five recent research studies of special interest to business education teachers are summarized. Significant issues in program development in New York State and a variety of instructional materials appropriate for use in business education classes are included. (SN)
