For several years the plea has been to individualize experiences in the classroom. Techniques in room structures (pods, movable walls, learning centers) and in teaching methods (contracts, team-teaching, open classroom concepts) attempted to set the stage for such individualization. Classrooms with permanent rows and every child on every page in every textbook on every day became known as traditional and were highly frowned upon by many educators. Teachers wanted to meet the needs of each child but were not necessarily skilled to do so.
