Winnetka Plan

Winnetka Plan, system of individualized instruction introduced in the public elementary and junior high schools of Winnetka, Ill., in 1919. It grew as a reaction to the uniform grading of students, which held them to the same rate of progress. In the plan, pupils develop particular abilities at their own pace. The curriculum is divided into 2 sections: basic tasks learned by students individually, and creative activities, such as art, literature, music, where achievement is not measured.
