Project "Freestyle": National Sites Results.
Williams, Frederick
Project "Freestyle" involved the development of prototypical television and print materials intended to combat sex-role stereotyping in career-related attitudes of nine to twelve-year-old children. This paper summarizes the results of the field evaluation of three pilot programs. With the aid of graphs, it reports the results in the following areas: comparison of three pilot programs in terms of children's liking of them, factual comprehension, and comprehension of material that reflected the series objectives; comparison of reactions of children who had access to both television and print materials and those who had only the television materials; comparison of student reactions to realistic and cartoon versions of a supplementary comic book; comprehension scores reflecting students' ability to identify the objectives in the television pilots; and teacher and administrator reactions to the use of the materials. For each topic, recommendations are made based on the findings. (GW)
