Individualized Instruction in Business and Office Education.
Pasewark, William R.; Kilchenstein, Dolores
Twenty-five individualized instruction programs in business and office education are described to illustrate the variety of forms individualized instruction may take. The programs are grouped in three categories: (1) scheduled (10 programs)--a regularly scheduled class of the same students meeting together, regularly, at the same assigned time; (2) unscheduled (3 programs)--the students attend a learning laboratory at times they find convenient; (3) both (12 programs)--the students attend a regularly scheduled class but may also use a lab facility, at either assigned or unassigned hours. Most of the program descriptions include an itemization of the areas of knowledge covered in the program in which individualized instruction strategy was used, an explanation of how the individualized instruction was incorporated, and the teacher's evaluation of the effectiveness of the strategy. Where appropriate, additional information was provided regarding the basis for the learning activities prescribed for the student, the nature of the hardware and software utilized, the availability of the learning facility to the students, student routine while using the facility, supervisor's role, and progress checks on the student. The teachers generally support the concept of individualized instruction, but some express the need for caution in its implementation. (AG)
