A Survey to Determine the Need for Future-Oriented Learning Materials Grades Five and Six.
Flynn, M. Jeanne
The purpose of this project was to determine the judgments of teachers regarding the need for future-oriented learning materials at fifth and sixth grade levels. The data were collected from a survey mailed to teachers at 94 Santa Clara County (California) schools, with the emphasis on the teacher's interpretation of his or her own program rather than library or media center materials per se. A high level of interest in future-oriented education was indicated. When measuring the relationship of what is taught with availability of materials to teach the concept, there was a high positive correlation significant at the .01 level. Whenever adequate learning materials were available, the tendency was for the educator to teach that concept. A recommendation was made to provide future-oriented learning materials and/or to start workshops for the development of such materials. (VT)
