English Composition: A Course Design for Individualized Instruction in the Community College.
Griffin, Debra F.
After a review of selected literature on individualized instruction and writing courses, learning objectives and activities are presented for a course in English composition, incorporating four sequential units which students complete at their own rate and for which only pass, fail, or incomplete grades are assigned. The first of these units introduces the student to writing as self-expression, by requiring him/her to enter thoughts or experiences in a personal journal and to share and discuss journal entries with the instructor and the class. Unit II reinforces the basic mechanics of sentence structure, punctuation, and spelling. Unit III provides exercises in developing thoughts through paragraphs, and Unit IV examines thematic essay writing. For each unit the following are provided: (1) a rationale; (2) general objectives; (3) evaluation criteria and goals; (4) learning activities for the class, for individuals, and for small groups; (5) materials for the student, including instructions, self-checks, exercises and answer keys; and (6) a unit evaluation to be completed by the student.
