Individualizing Course Content in Undergraduate Education: A Contract Plan.
Christenberry, Mary Anne
Contracting for the content of an undergraduate course as one means of individualizing instruction is discussed in this report. It proved to be a successful method for students with wide varieties of background and educational aims in a number of education courses. A personal contract between each student and the instructor is drawn for the duration of the course. The instructor's suggestions for planning this approach to individualized instruction are discussed with advantages, disadvantages, a report of student reactions and opinions, and suggested procedures for implementation of this approach. Both the instructor and the students found that these contracts facilitated learning and considered it a practical demonstration of a good teaching method which has been widely discussed but too-seldom used in undergraduate instruction.
