A Leadership Workshop on Elementary School Science: An In-depth Evaluation.
Merkle, Dale G.
Reported are the results of a workshop designed to instruct college teachers and science consultants in "Science - A Process Approach" and "Science Curriculum""Improvement Study" curricula. One of the objectives of the workshop was to influence participants to promote these curricula and initiate change. This report is an evaluation of the reactions of participants to the workshop and their behavioral change after they left the workshop. Pre-workshop, post-workshop, and follow-up measures indicated that significant differences in knowledge of the two programs, knowledge of process skills, knowledge of change-agent skills, and in attitude toward the two elementary science curricula were developed. Increased inservice activities and an altering of preservice courses to include more of the AAAS and SCIS philosophies and activities were among the changes reported. (BR)
