Individualization of Instruction: The Elementary School. Education Monograph No. 6.
Millis, George H.
This paper delves into the concepts of individualized instruction at the elementary school level. Following an explanation of individualized instruction, the paper presents two differing points of view concerning how provisions can be made to individualize instruction: a) the patterned approach, which emphasizes the logical sequence involved in teaching a subject, and b) the unpatterned approach, which rejects the idea of the above. The vertical and horizontal organization of the school is then discussed in relation to graded and nongraded schools and to general ability and multi-age grouping of students. Individual differences found in the classroom are treated, as are provisions for dealing with these differences. Various uses of individualized instruction in the subjects of reading, social studies, and science are noted. A 15-item bibliography is included. (For related documents, see SP 006 949-953.) (BRB)
