Evaluation of Dynamics and Influences of Culture and Environment Program (DICEP), 1972-76.
This paper describes the Dynamics and Influences of Culture and Environment Program (DICEP) which operated in the Atlanta Public School System from 1972 to 1975. The program began on a pilot basis at one middle school and expanded to include eight middle schools. The selected curricular areas for implementation of the program in all schools were: language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. Although each school formulated its own behavioral objectives, the major goals for the five years were: (1) to provide in-service activities to help teachers, (2) to develop curricular materials to facilitate personalized learning, (3) to provide paraprofessionals to assist with individualization, and (4) to provide assistance to schools in the selection and use of commercially available multi-sensory media which emphasize concepts and process skills. Other program goals were to increase academic achievement of students and to improve self-concept, motivation, and understanding of their own culture and that of others. Throughout its five years of operation DICEP was evaluated in many ways through various instruments. It was concluded that components of DICEP promoted pupil achievement when these components were properly implemented and consistently pursued over a period of time. (Author/AM)
