RFD: "Rural Family Development". Second Year Report, June 1971.
Wisconsin Univ., Madison. Univ. Extension.
This report covers the materials used in and resulting from the second year of a three-year Rural Family Development (RFD) project in Wisconsin. The materials are presented in several parts. The areas covered are (1) the use of television, (2) methods, (3) field services, (4) project evaluation, (5) the RFD in the context of a mediated delivery system, (6) a compilation of favorite recipes resulting from a contest, (7) a home-study content center materials outline, and (8) an annotated bibliography of the instructional materials contained in the RFD Resource Center. The results to date indicate that the RFD project is succeeding in achieving its goals in that about one-quarter of the total adult audience in the project area viewed one or more of the television programs, over 1,700 adults requested follow-up materials, "Action Line" handled 1,641 inquiries, 11,000 bulletins were distributed, and only 3 of 50 of the "home visit" group dropped out. It is concluded that the multimedia delivery system demonstrated by RFD seems sound on the surface. (JS)
