Abstract : The paper describes a series of summer workshops for in-service teacher training (Kindergarten, Grades 1, 2, and 3) in the application of techniques and procedures based on pupil mastery of individualized modules of instruction. Contingency reinforcement management methods were demonstrated and practiced in the attempt to change pupil behavioral responses. It is noted that a change to individualized instruction must begin with changes in teacher classroom management skills rather than changes in students, architecture, or materials. (Author)
