Graves, Ginny; And Others
This study demonstrates that built environment education fits well into the existing curricula, meets objectives, and provides new directions for assessment in the classroom. The study examines what was happening in those classrooms using CUBE-produced curriculum materials. Sample assessment methods are provided for four differing educational settings to show the flexibility of the materials for diverse learning environments and learners. The table of contents includes: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "The Process"; (3) "The Educators and Their Settings"; (4) "Sample Assessments 1, 2, 3, 4"; (5) "Specific Objective Listing"; (6) "The Paradox of Assessment"; (7) "Resources"; and (8) "Curricular Correlation Chart."
