Report on Evaluation of Pilot Civics Institutes, NDEA 1966.
Longaker, Richard; Cleary, Robert
This report is one of a series presenting the results of studies of NDEA Title XI and Arts and Humanities Foundation institute programs and selected institute-associated activities conducted in 1966. During the summer of 1966 five pilot Institutes in Civics were funded by the Office of Education. The purpose was to utilize the initial experience for the improvement of civics institutes expected in greater numbers in subsequent years. There is no doubt that the pilot institutes served this function. This report includes: 1) an evaluation of these pilot institutes; 2) specific suggestions for improvements which might be adopted in the years ahead; and, 3) a discussion of some of the more profound background questions which emerge not only from the institute experience but which are also inherent in the problems of civic education. The five institutes served a total of 190 social studies teachers. (Author/JLB)
