Materials and Activities for Teachers and Children: A Project to Develop and Evaluate Multi-Media Kits for Elementary Schools. Volume II: Appendices.
Kresse, Frederick H.
The second volume of the report by the Children's Museum of Boston on the development of MATCH Boxes (Materials and Activities for Teachers and Children) contains materials related to the evaluation of these multi-media kits. The MATCH Boxes, designed for use by a teacher with 30 children for two to three weeks, covered 16 different topics, the majority of which relate to the social sciences. The boxes were developed in three groups, each one building on techniques learned with the previous group. The criteria which were evolved to select an idea to be used for a box are listed. Sample sections from several of the teacher's guides which accompanied each box are included. Examples are given of the tabulated data which was collected from the teachers on a daily log and a final evaluation sheet and from observers sent to view the use of the materials in the classroom. Samples of the evaluation forms used by the teachers and independent observers in this testing stage are reproduced. Summaries of the reports on each of the 16 boxes indicate that they were at least acceptable as to workability, success in reaching stated aims, teacher acceptance, and student response. Suggestions on specific modifications for each box were made, and the possibility of commercial production was estimated. (JY/MT)
