Student Learning of Personal Behavior in the "Meeting Modern Problems" Curriculum.
Rowe, John R.; And Others
The "Curriculum for Meeting Modern Problems" was tested by the Project Evaluator in 36 Classrooms in 10 communities within the State of Ohio. Two areas of investigation were established. The first area was conceived as follows: Do students who are subjected to the experimental treatment learn to apply their knowledge about behavior and constructive methods of resolving problems in their everyday living? The following conclusions were reached: (a) through cognitive testing, it was concluded that students exposed to the curriculum are able to examine behavior in search of appropriate causation, alternatives, and long and short term consequences; (b) through attitude testing, the conclusion was reached that although the experimental students gained slightly more in self concept attitude, the differences were inconsequential; (c) behavioral testing established that both experimental and control students gained in positive behavior during the study period. The second area of investigation was conceived as follows: Will the experimental treatment affect teachers in such a manner that they move toward a more indirect, student centered value position? The following conclusion was reached: teacher pre- and post-testing established that experimental group teachers gained significantly in student centered attitudes in relationship to control group teachers.
