Evaluation of Project Symbiosis: An Interdisciplinary Science Education Project.
Altschuld, James W.
Cognosos, v2 n3 p4-5 Sum 1993
The goal of this report is to provide a summary of the evaluation of Project Symbiosis which focused on enhancing the teaching of science principles in high school agriculture courses. The project initially involved 15 teams of science and agriculture teachers and was characterized by an extensive evaluation component consisting of six formal elements and one informal element. Data collected for evaluative purposes included preparticipation information, workshop evaluations, post-workshop telephone interviews, teacher generated products, and on-site interviews. Preliminary implications of Project Symbiosis suggest that evaluation methods must be multifaceted, the interdisciplinary teacher teaming requires extended periods of time, and structures within schools should be altered to assist teams.
