A Strategy for Disseminating Elementary Science Curricula.
Gullickson, Arlen R.; Horn, Jerry G.
Presented is a description of a program developed to provide better dissemination of curricula, particularly for elementary school teachers and principals. The strategy described, Tactics for Applying Programs in Education (TAPE), an NSF-funded project, involved extensive use of mass media channels for creating awareness of science curricula programs and establishment of a resource services component to stimulate interest among school personnel and facilitate their exploration of opportunities for implementing available curricula. Such materials included television advertisements, brochures, journal articles and feature stories, and ads for radio and newspaper. To validate the results of the project, it was developed as a quasi-experiment. A stratified random sample of approximately 1,200 teachers, principals, and the general public was contacted by mail to learn how many were familiar with the selected curricula. These data are to be compared to a similar postassessment to be completed the following spring. (EB)
