A Study of the Effectiveness of the Booklet Entitled "Family Tours of Michiana."
Sharp, Ann; And Others
This study assesses the effectiveness of a book which designates places of interest in Michigan and Indiana. Developed by students at the University of Indiana, the book increases the local cultural awareness of both adults and children in the two state area. A questionnaire was sent to 336 families to determine the number of families who had used the booklet as a guide for family tours, the number of sites they visited, and an evaluation of each one. The results indicate that the majority of respondents who had received the book used it as a source of information. Length of residence in the area has a positive influence on the number of sites visited. In general the book is a valuable tool to introduce places of interest to those who had previously been unaware of them. Included in the appendix are the questionnaire, summary of comments, percentage tables, letters of respondents, and a copy of the "Family Tours of Michiana" booklet. (Author/DE)
