Evaluation Summary for Phase 2: Understanding the Environment.
The evaluation of Phase 2 consists of quantitative ratings and qualitative comments collected through the use of an Evaluation Booklet (124 returned). Quantitative data were gathered for the teaching procedures used for each lesson; they included ratings of materials, preparation, teacher information, purpose, and teacher actions. Qualitative data were gathered for the evaluation of content, background information, readiness assessment, pre-evaluation of social knowledge, and general teaching principles and strategies. The quantitative rating scores are presented in a matrix at the beginning of each section or lesson. The teachers' qualitative comments are then tabulated and presented for each section, and grouped into three categories: positive, negative, and suggestions. These comments may be used for further definition of the meaning of the quantitative scores, and as clues to the application of that phase. Following the summary, some general trends in the evaluation are discussed. SO 000 138, SO 000 139, SO 000 140, SO 000 141, SO 000 156, and SO 000 158 cover other facets of the curriculum evaluation. SO 000 004 and SO 000 099 are other related documents. (SBE)
