The Use of a Comparative Analysis as an Evaluation of a Junior High School Conservation Education Program.
Solid, Myron Lee
This study investigated the existence and magnitude of differences in attitudes and knowledge of conservation of natural resources in two similar Colorado communities where one community had a conservation education program as a part of a school curriculum and the other did not. Ancillary to the investigation was the demonstration of a proposed model of curriculum evaluation. Data collected in the study were utilized in a comparative analysis between the study communities and among groups within the communities, aimed toward an assessment of a school curricular conservation education program. The comparative analysis indicated that a community with a conservation education program in its junior high school exhibited more favorable attitudes toward natural resource conservation and knew more about conservation than did the community that had no formal conservation education in its schools. The conservation education program studied was judged effective in promoting awareness of natural resource conservation and transferring knowledge about conservation to youth. A direct relationship between favorable attitudes toward conservation and knowledge about conservation was indicated. (Author/BL)
