Students and Teachers Develop English Curriculum. Final Report.
Hewick, Walter E.
The purpose of this evaluation was to determine the relative effectiveness of a tenth grade English curriculum collectively constructed by students and teachers. Twenty-two tasks were formulated to give direction to the evaluation. To effectively and adequately diagnose the soundness of the project, a multi-criterion approach was adopted executing the following activities: (1) the administration of evaluation instruments to a random sample of pupils involved in the project; (2) the administration of a questionnaire to solicit the participating teachers' subjective reactions on several aspects of the project; (3) special conferences with the involved teachers; (4) evaluator's interaction with both teachers and directors; (5) direct observations by the directors of the project; and (6) evaluators' interactions with directors. From the results it was concluded that the project was successful, with the teachers, students, directors, and observers profiting in several ways. Task evaluations are listed under each task described. (HOD)
