The Embassy Adoption Program. Final Evaluation Report, 1982-1983.
District of Columbia Public Schools, Washington, DC. Div. of Quality Assurance.
A multicultural enrichment program in which selected fifth- and sixth-grade students from Washington, District of Columbia, public schools learned about other countries by studying a foreign embassy is evaluated. Chapter I outlines the main components of the program: joint educator-embassy planning, student research, student field visits and embassy guest presentations in the classroom, student culminating projects, and student participation in a mock United Nations. Chapters II and III concern evaluation. A description of the Planning, Monitoring, and Implementing Model (PMI) used for evaluation is followed by a chart presenting evaluation results. Measured are the degrees of joint participation in implementation among sponsoring agencies and program impact on students' knowledge of other countries. Findings indicate a highly successful program, with a high degree of correlation on all input/output measures. The appendix includes the evaluation schema, program communications, curriculum suggestions, and unexpected outcomes. (LP)
