Something for Everyone: Ideas for Individualizing in the Classroom. Instructional Strategies Series No. 7.
The purpose of the documents in this series is to provide educators in Saskatchewan with practical and relevant guides to teaching and learning as a means of expanding or refining teaching repertoires. This publication explores individualizing for students, emphasizing that what the classroom teacher does depends on his/her abilities and beliefs about education and learning, and on resources and students in the classroom. The guide acts as a starting point for individualizing; it contains a collection of activities that have been tried, along with tips that have worked for other educators. The individualizing process is explored through the utilization of variety, choice, options, and self-directed learning. Each level or step is successively more student-directed and student-centered. Space is provided throughout the document for thoughts on how these ideas might be adjusted to best suit individual students. The document concludes with a list of 10 resources, each with a brief annotation. (LL)
