Law-Related Education Evaluation Project, Final Report. Phase II, Year 2.
Social Science Education Consortium, Inc., Boulder, CO.; Center for Action Research, Inc., Boulder, CO.
Results of a 3rd-year evaluation of a national law-related education effort (LRE) are presented. Attention is centered on the activities of three curriculum projects--the Constitutional Rights Foundation, the National Institute for Citizen's Education and Law, and Law in a Free Society--which were implemented in California, Michigan, and North Carolina. Program institutionalization activities of the American Bar Association and Phi Alpha Delta fraternity are also examined. Five substantive chapters cover the following aspects of these programs: teacher training efforts, implementation of the curricula in 35 classrooms, impact of the curricula on student attitudes and behavior with respect to delinquency prevention, impact of classroom settings and practices on delinquency prevention, and institutionalization efforts within the target states and nationwide. Each chapter is divided into five sections dealing negatively with the research problem, guiding questions, methods, results, and conclusions. A final chapter reviews conclusions about implementation and advances recommendations. The report concludes with appendices on instrumentation, classroom implementation narratives and data, supplementary impact tables, indicators of institutionalization, and excerpts from state institutionalization plans.
