THIS REPORT PREPARED BY AN EVALUATION COMMITTEE DESCRIBES (1) THE PROGRAM GOALS AND CONCEPTS, ADMINISTRATIVE PROBLEMS, AND DIFFICULTIES WITH TICKET DISTRIBUTION THAT PREVENTED ADEQUATE PREPLANNING AND CLASS PREPARATION BY TEACHERS, (2) THE VALUES AND DEFECTS OF STUDY GUIDES THAT WERE PREPARED, (3) THE METHODS USED TO COMPARE THE RESULTS ACHIEVED BY THE SIX STUDENT GROUPS THAT REPRESENTED DIFFERENT ECONOMIC BACKGROUNDS AND LEVELS OF PARTICIPATION IN THE DRAMA PROGRAM, AND (4) AN EVALUATION OF THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE PROGRAM AND SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENTS THAT COULD MAKE FUTURE PROGRAMS BE MORE EFFICIENTLY CONDUCTED AND PROVIDE GREATER OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENT LEARNING. THE COMMITTEE CONCLUDED THAT (1) THERE WAS A LACK OF GENERAL AGREEMENT AMONG ADMINISTRATORS, TEACHERS, AND ACTORS ABOUT THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND THE VENTURE, (2) ALTHOUGH THE PROGRAM WAS OF VALUE, IT WAS OF VARYING WORTH TO VARIOUS TEACHERS AND THEIR STUDENTS, AND (3) EVIDENCE GATHERED SUPPORTS THE BELIEF THAT THE PROGRAM GENERATED AESTHETIC AND INTELLECTUAL ENTHUSIASM IN SOME AREAS WHERE IT HAD NOT PREVIOUSLY EXISTED.
