Individualized instruction focuses on the needs of the individual student. Teaching is specific and targets one need at a time. This teaching method can be used on its own, or it can be part of differentiated instruction for an individual student or group. Some students who receive individualized instruction need teachers to help them understand and learn. Other students using the same teaching method can skip topics they already know and go on to advanced information.
Our independently study class meets each day as one of the 8 periods to which students are assigned. Depending on the teacher assigned to each independent study class throughout the week, a student might avail him/herself to an extra dosing of a skill that might need greater practice.
