Me and My Environment Final Formative Evaluation Report. A Synthesis of Findings.
Meyer, Don E.; And Others
Presented is the final formative evaluation report on "Me and My Environment," a 3-year multimedia environmental sciences program developed for 14 to 17-year-old educable mentally handicapped (EMH) children by the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS). Discussed are the goals of employability and personal independence for EMH children and the role of science education in helping to reach these goals. An overview of the components of the BSCS EMH science curriculum and of the curriculum development model are provided. Factors which influenced the decision to conduct a formative rather than a summative evaluation are noted. Listed are the titles, categories (such as filmstrip or student booklet), lengths and unit numbers of published materials in "Me and My Environment." A guide to the contents of the five formative evaluation reports includes the type of information, report number and page number, and a brief description of the contents. (LS)
