Rationalizing Individualized Instruction.
Niedzielski, Henri
A holistic and teleological approach to individualized FL instruction is proposed as a possible universal pedagogical theory. The following guidelines are offered. Broad goals and specific operational objectives should be defined, and performance testing devices developed. Each student's particular psychological aptitudes and physiological and cultural characteristics must be discovered, and the psychosocial uniqueness of each language should be recognized. The student can then be offered a choice of goals and tests compatible with his or her aptitudes, characteristics, and interests; on this basis, overall instructional and interactional strategies can be planned. Individual learning paths should be assessed according to the performance of communicative tasks. Finally, the instructor should remain flexible at all stages and, together with the students and the administration, involved in a continuous process of self-evaluation and renewal. As students should learn how to study on their own, it is felt that programmed materials would be most helpful. Specific references are made to "Basic French." (Author/AM)
