High School Geography Project, Boulder, CO.
This report is the result of the 1969-70 High School Geography Project (HSGP) fields trials which had as their purpose the evaluation of three teacher kits entitled, "Using Simulation to Involve Students,""Using Media to Stimulate Inquiry," and "Using Evaluation to Improve Instruction." Each kit has an Instructor's Guide, a Participants' Manual, a video tape, and additional a handouts and media. The 64 instructors in 34 states were selected from volunteers for the trials. Groups of 16 instructors represented inservice programs, social studies methods classes, and geography methods classes. An additional group of 16 social studies methods instructors did not use the kits and served as a control group. The 64 instructors had approximately 1,400 participants. This report provides guidance for revision of the kits. It is based on responses to questionnaires and an attitude scale administered to instructors and participants at the conclusion of each kit. In addition, instructors answered a series of questions to determine the likelihood of their using the kits. Scales and questionnaire data, generally favorable, are summarized in the report. Control group data will be incorporated in later report. (Author/DJB)
