Guidebook for Teacher Use in Individualizing Instruction Through Use of Unipacs.
Wisconsin Consortium for Individualized Learning, Madison.
This guidebook describes an instructional and curricular tool, the Unipac, which teachers can use to individualize instruction. The Unipac is defined as a lesson plan for learners, a self-contained set of teaching-learning materials designed to teach any single topic; it is structured for individual use and aids the development of a continuous progress school program. Its overall purpose is to motivate students to initiate their own objectives and learning activities. In addition, the guidebook provides a rationale for Unipac use and shows how it differs from traditional approaches since it is student-oriented and focused on behavioral objectives. The guide lists the components of the Unipac as a concept to be learned, sub-concepts, behavioral objectives, pre-tests, learning activities, self-evaluation, quest activities, post-tests, and feedback. It also details how to construct and use a Unipac, discusses the roles of teachers, students, and others, mentions some concerns relevant to their use, and gives instructions on how to evaluate them.
