Individualization of instruction is one of the most important directions for innovation and reform in American education. The past decade has seen serious and widespread attempts to introduce more and more instruction of an individualized nature into our elementary schools. Yet there is a question of continuing concern to elementary teachers. How can they adequately meet the individual needs of pupils in a school operation which is geared to masses of students? Although this problem largely remains unsolved, attempts have been made to provide for individual needs through various plans of individualized instruction.
