Resident Environmental Classroom. Disadvantaged Pupil Program Fund. Evaluation Report, 1982-83.
Morton-Watts, Gwendolyn
This report provides an evaluation, for the school year 1982-83, of the Resident Environmental Classroom project for Chapter I classroom teachers and students in the Cleveland Public Schools. The project is designed to provide students with direct experience with the natural environment, exposure to experiential learning concepts, exposure to a variety of situations utilizing group unity/dynamics and teamwork, and opportunities to interact with students of different racial, ethnic, and geographic backgrounds. In 1982-83, 1,441 sixth grade students and 72 classroom teachers from Chapter I schools took part in the project. Three additional sessions provided leadership training for 42 junior and 66 senior high school student council members. The program objectives were attained: a 25 percent gain in student knowledge of environmental concepts; approval of 80 percent of the teachers concerning the project's educational value; and participation of racially-mixed groups of sixth grade students.
