K-12 Social Science Program Evaluation.
Brown, Carol S.
This paper provides a program evaluation of the K-12 social science program in the Des Moines (Iowa) public schools. The program attempts to provide a balance between American and World Studies, History and Current Issues. It emphasizes multicultural and non-sexist learnings and includes the knowledge, skills and attitudes necessary to survive in a rapidly changing and diverse society. A real strength of the program is a variety of interesting and challenging experiential programs which compliment and broaden the curriculum. Sections of the paper include: (1) evaluation abstract; (2) mission; (3) context evaluation; (4) input evaluation; (5) process evaluation; (6) product evaluation; and (7) future planning. Appendices offer overviews of the conflict manager program, the international programs, and the Global Youth Institute summary report. (EH)
