Sanford - Lee County Schools, NC.
One-third of the report explains the nature of the project, its development, administration, and the details of the individualized instruction system. The project goal of developing an individualized cluster curriculum in occupational education is described. The five phases of planning, development, pilot testing, revision, and dissemination which lasted from October 1971 to June 1974 are outlined. The development of the individualized instructional system consisting of minicourses, automated instruction, learning activity packages, task packages, and a centralized learning resources center for each of the six instructional programs (typing, distributive education, masonry, carpentry, metals, and drafting) is described. Conclusions and recommendations concerning both the conduct of the project and the instructional system itself are presented. The remaining two-thirds of the report is composed of appendixes which provide sample minicourse descriptions, task packages for each of the six instructional programs, a smaple page from the competency survey form, sample competency statements, a sample unit task package, a unit test, an instructor's performance checklist, a student progress chart, a vocational skill list, a student survey form, and a staff development plan. Each task package includes rationale, objectives, learning activities, and learning practice. (JR)
