Technique for Individualization: The Academic Development Plan. BASICS: Bridging Vocational and Academic Skills.
Pritz, Sandra G.; Crowe, Michael R.
This document guides school staff through a systematic identification of individual student needs and steps to meet those needs. It is part of BASICS, a package of integrated materials developed to assist teachers, administrators, and counselors in bridging vocational and academic skills. It discusses the process for developing an Academic Development Plan (ADP) and completing an ADP form. An introduction describes the rationale for an ADP and the ADP process. Each of the next six sections focuses on one of the ADP tasks: prepare to develop ADPs, obtain information for the ADP, analyze students' needs and design a plan to address them, put the plan into action, monitor student progress, and revise the ADP. Extensive appendixes include the ADP form; information on diagnostic testing (formal and informal student assessment, additional sources of information); basic skills analysis forms; information on cognitive style, learning style, and teaching techniques; a summary of sex equity principles; an article with basic information on mainstreaming and school-to-work transition; and background material on minority and immigrant, gifted and talented, and migrant youth.
