Planning and Operating an Individualized Learning Center.
Campbell, David; Kush, Gary
Information useful for the initiation and operation of an individualized learning center (ILC) is provided in this manual which also includes an evaluation of the ILC for the American Indian students of the Cook School in Arizona. The recommendations in the manual are based on the experience gained in operating the ILC at the Cook School. The manual details in great depth aspects of an ILC; the processes of planning, staffing, and organizing an ILC are described along with the important areas of institutional support, finance, and selecting objectives. The administration of an ILC and the processes of monitoring and grading student progress are also described. The evaluation concluded that students using the ILC at the Cook School made statistically significant gains in reading vocabulary and comprehension, mathematics computation and problem solving, and language arts, but not in spelling. An attitude inventory indicated a positive feeling toward the ILC. The extensive appendixes contain many of the forms and descriptions of the material used in the ILC. (WH)
