Declaration of Independence
Teachers and parent-teachers, you can't do your job alone. You need good materials to assist you. With good materials students will work independently and will persist at their work. With good materials your teaching task is manageable.
It is virtually impossible to individualize instruction without individualized learning materials. Having students work on their own is a hallmark of individualized instruction.
Section I provides background. Section II makes suggestions about how teachers can best manage students' independent work. Section III provides lists of available independent-learning materials K-12. Section IV is a list of the publishers referred in Section III.
