Project HEED. Final Evaluation Report.
Hughes, Orval D.
During 1972-73, Project HEED (Heed Ethnic Educational Depolarization) involved 1,350 Indian students in 60 classrooms at Sells, Topowa, San Carlos, Rice, Many Farms, Hotevilla, Peach Springs, and Sacaton. Primary objectives were: (1) improvement in reading skills, (2) development of cultural awareness, and (3) providing for the Special Education needs of Indian children. In this report, the evaluation design format used was the introduction of each objective and pertinent data, in the form of results, which verified whether the objective was achieved. Various tests were administered, among which were: the Distar Mastery Tests, Wide Range Achievement Test, and the Self-Appraisal Inventory. Some of the project's successes were: (1) development of cultural awareness materials by students, (2) expansion of Special Education services, and (3) considerable field trip participation at all sites. Included in the addendum of this report are the first and second quarterly reports, a special evaluation report, thoughts about cultural awareness, a listing of field trips taken, and a letter from three Albuquerque public school teachers.
