This study was a pilot effort to examine the relationships among a series of factors within the practice of a teacher who is attempting to implement the Facing History and Ourselves (FHAO) curriculum into his/her classroom. The factors included the content being taught, the pedagogical choices made, the "intentionality" of the efforts related to classroom climate development, and their effects on student achievement and classroom climate. The pilot study employed a qualitative emergent design to follow 2 teachers into the field that had recently completed a FHAO Training Institute. Results indicated that the FHAO teacher participants showed a significantly better performance across all measures on both classroom climate and FHAO/Social Studies outcomes. (Contains 2 tables.)
