Evaluation Summary for Phase 1: Perceiving Individuality.
Beginning in September of 1968, a series of orientation meetings were conducted to establish a field test network and to introduce the Social Learning Curriculum to interested teachers. Phase 1 of the Curriculum was distributed and the system for evaluation was explained. During this period the project could determine the amount of time teachers had available to devote to the curriculum evaluation process and the most suitable format for collecting the evaluative data within that time. The Teachers' Evaluation Sheet was used as an early and temporary evaluation format primarily concerned with gathering qualitative information on: content, background information, readiness assessment, pre-evaluation of social knowledge, and general teaching principles and strategies. Evaluation Booklets (171) were returned; the teachers' comments on each section and each activity in the curriculum were tabulated to provide a summary of how teachers viewed Phase 1. Following the summary, some general trends in the evaluation are discussed. There are no breakdowns of the data according to demographic variables in this report, however, the demographic information is reported in SO 000 140 and SO 000 141. SO 000 138, SO 000 139, SO 000 157, and SO 000 158 cover other facets of the curriculum evaluation. SO 000 004 and SO 000 099 are other related documents. (SBE)
