Nutrition Education Training Program, 1980-1981. Final Evaluation Report, January 27, 1981-June 30, 1981.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn, NY. Office of Educational Evaluation.
The two-day, Inservice Nutrition Education Training Program was designed to provide teachers with curriculum methodology and materials in nutrition education for grades kindergarten through six. This report examines the results of the program through a posttest questionnaire designed to assess teacher reactions to the curriculum materials, teacher attitudes about the effect of the program, and the extent to which implementation took place. Although only 22 percent of the participants responded to the posttest questionnaire, the majority of respondents noted positive behavioral changes in the food habits of students. The data also suggested that the program helped to improve teachers' attitudes toward teaching nutrition and to increase parent involvement in nutrition education. However, results also showed only a small percentage of teachers reporting that school wide nutrition activity took place as a result of the program. (JCD)
