Approaches to Individualized Education.
Jeter, Jan, Ed.
The intent of this booklet is to stimulate interest in individualized education, to promote study of it, and to encourage educators to experiment with the idea in ways appropriate to their local situations. Chapter 1 analyzes the concept of individualization. The chapter includes paradigms that may be helpful for examining some of the current programs in use. Chapter 2 treats administrative arrangements, curriculum materials, and delivery systems for selected comprehensive systems of individualization. Chapter 3 draws on research and evaluation studies to answer the question What do we know about individualization that can guide practice in schools? The fourth chapter offers suggestions to principals and teachers for individualizing instruction in their own schools, and an epilog stresses the need for teachers to expand their abilities to respond to the needs of learners.
