Stearman Demonstration Library Media Center. Phase Two. ESEA Title II Evaluation Report.
Liechti, Carroll D.; Walker, Ralph E.
An evaluation was made of the impact on fifth grade pupils of an additional input of resources and materials related to the humanities area. Teacher perception of the project indicated that this enrichment increased pupil conception of the time sequence of historical events and helped students to a better understanding of minority groups. A key person in the project, the librarian at the media center, also saw positive value in the project for the students, motivating them to increase their use of materials and making them more aware of the humanities areas as affected by the geography and/or history of a period. Each teacher in the project used a slightly different approach, and each unit was handled differently by each teacher. The pupil reaction forms, as measured by the locally developed instrument, showed significant changes in the area of music, which the teachers also perceived to be the most successful part of the correlation process. The forms used in the evaluation are appended. (MF)
