SADMESS. Student Assisted Development of Materials for Environmental and Social Studies. Final Report.
Wiley, Karen; And Others
In June, 1971, the Social Science Education Consortium (SSEC) received a grant for a project--namely, Student Assisted Development of Materials for Environmental and Social Studies (SADMESS)--which employed high school students to develop curriculum materials emphasizing the social science aspects of environmental education. SADMESS personnel consisted of professional educators and staff of SSEC, and 8 students from local high schools in Boulder, Colorado. Two books were developed by the project staff: "Sunshine Unfolding," (SO 006 207), which focuses on the philosophical/religious approaches to man, and the "Boulder Experiments Scrapbook," (SO 006 206), which describes the seven month project that culminated in a large community environmental fair. This final report describes the project, from the initial funding by the Office of Environmental Education through recruiting of staff, orientation, planning the projects, tying up loose ends, and evaluation. A Fiscal Report is included, as well as logs kept by the students and professional staff giving an idea of the progress made during the year. Eleven appendices are included. (OPH)
