IGE--The Schools, The State and The College.
Quigley, Lawrence A.
This speech presents a brief history of the development of basic principles of IGE (Individually Guided Education) and IGE schools; a description of IGE programs as they exist today follows. Among the many aspects of IGE noted in this speech, two are highlighted: a) the program assists teachers in varying instructional settings to meet different purposes for different students, and b) the program helps teachers develop ways of organizing instruction to accommodate differences in student responses to individual teachers. There are brief discussions of the following components of IGE schools: the teacher as advisor, IGE Clinical Training Workshops, nongraded schools, and the use of an IGE-trained facilitator who serves as intermediary between the different institutions. The speech ends with a description of the National Evaluation Study of Attitudes towards IGE. The study found that attitudes towards IGE are overwhelmingly favorable. (JA)
