Problems and Potentials of Individualized Instruction for Disadvantaged Students.
Boylan, Hunter R.
This paper describes the operation and results of an individualized center funded under an Office of Education grant for the provision of special services to disadvantaged students. This center is designed to apply individualized instructional techniques to remedial, developmental, and general education courses for disadvantaged students enrolled at Bowling Green State University. An outline of program operations is provided, including descriptions of courses, instructional methods used, and services offered in support of instructional activities. The outcomes of program operation are described and student achievement data is provided to document these outcomes. Problems encountered in program development and course implementation are discussed and attempted solutions are described. On the basis of experience and research, it is concluded that individualized instructional techniques tend to result in higher grades and better mastery of subject matter for disadvantaged students. It is suggested that these techniques have considerable potential for application in remedial and developmental instructional settings. (Author)
