SPEAC for Nutrition. Final Secondary Evaluation Report.
Copa, Patricia M.; Parsons, Joanne H.
This paper is an evaluation of a curriculum guide designed to promote better eating habits in young children through educating teens as child care workers and future parents. The curriculum guide was initially field tested in two occupational child care classrooms in Minneapolis. The overall purpose of the evaluation was to determine whether the guide as written could be used in situations involving teachers and students in schools. The paper is divided into four parts. The first section describes the purpose and design of the evaluation and gives general descriptions of the field test sites and the curriculum. Section 2 reports findings related to program implementation. These findings are presented within categories that emerged as the study progressed. Section 3 describes findings related to effects of the program on program participants. Findings are reported according to the four questions which guided the impact part of the study. Section 4 discusses the implications of and recommendations for addenda to the present curriculum, for future revisions and for distribution and inservicing. (Author/MP)
