Selected Findings on the Impact of the CASPAR Alcohol Education Program on Teacher Training and Curriculum Implementation. Evaluation Report No. 8.
Carifio, James; And Others
The Cambridge and Somerville (Massachusetts) Program for Alcoholism Rehabilitation (CASPAR) was instituted to train teachers and social service workers in implementing alcohol education programs; to train selected high school students as peer leaders; and to promote community awareness of alcohol-related problems. A sequential cycle evaluation model was used, primarily to assess the impact of the CASPAR curriculum--entitled "decisions about drinking"--upon students; and secondarily, to evaluate their teachers, who had participated in curriculum implementation workshops. The five questionnaires, administered to secondary school students, measured: alcohol knowledge, attitudes, and stereotypes; use/abuse; prior exposure to alcohol education; social desirability; and satisfaction with teaching session. Teachers completed a knowledge and attitude questionnaire and a process log which covered: lesson content, teaching conditions, critical incidents of student behavior, and ratings of students, self, and the teaching session in general. Findings were reported in terms of the following variables: (1) type of questionnaire; (2) response mode--correct, incorrect, uncertain; (3) sex of teacher and student; (4) units of instruction and amount of prior exposure; (5) students, groups, grade levels, and communities; (6) time of year and day; (7) teacher type and teaching conditions; and (8) extent of curriculum implementation. (A separate report discusses student attitude changes after Alcohol Education Week. The instruments are appended.) (CP)
