Woodland Schools Adopt New Concept

There’s a new concept in education these days, and the teachers at the Woodland Park Elementary school are taking full advantage. A generation ago, the idea would have been revolutionary, but today it is a recognized and highly successful method of education. Quite simply, it’s all based on the idea that students are individuals and that no two are alike. It’s called individualized education. In the first few grades, the youngsters are assigned classes according to what suits each child best. The idea of individualized education is carried on up through the other grades. Individualized instruction on any level, challenges each student to select a particular goal and reach it with success.

Then begin to act upon it by expecting new ideas to come through you. Turn your imagination loose and listen. A stream of better and better ideas will begin to flow through you. It is only those who believe in themselves and their creative ability, listen for ides and treat them with respect and gratitude who find the million dollar ones.
