Individualized instruction is one approach that can be used to meet the needs of students at the secondary level who have different learning styles, abilities, and interests. After researching information about individualized instruction, it was clear that more innovative ideas, learning centers, and instructional materials needed to be developed at the secondary level, especially in the English classroom because so little has been done in that area.; This project deals with issues such as the physical classroom environment, learning centers/computers, learning styles, personal learning contracts, and the assessment of work based on the content of curriculum and how those issues contribute to an individualized classroom. Although individualized instruction was most popular during the 1970s, there is a place for this type of instruction in the classrooms of today.
