REACH* KIT: Research Extended As Classroom Help.
Presented is an evaluation of the Research Extended As Classroom Help (REACH) Kit. Developed by the University of Arkansas physics faculty, the REACH KIT is intended to bring current energy-related research results into college physics classrooms. The completed product consists of a package of instructional materials which contains a text, slides, overhead transparencies, and tape cassettes. Data gathered by means of evaluation questionnaires mailed with sample kits to 251 institutions show that the material was generally well received, but participants indicated they would purchase the kit only at a price below the actual production cost. Informal contacts with publishers reveal that various factors make it impractical for them to commercially produce the REACH KIT. The developers anticipate that materials will be disseminated, at cost, through the American Association of Physics Teachers. (Author/WB)
