AbstractThe purpose of this project was to develop an instructional unit on the community of Elliot Lake, Ontario for use in the Grade Two environmental studies course in that community. -- Filmstrips with an accompanying audiotape and teacher's guide were chosen as the media of presentation to the intended learners. -- Various developmental stages were involved in the completion of the instructional package. At certain stages content and media experts and teachers were consulted informally and formally for the purpose of evaluating the content and technical qualities of the instructional materials. Based upon the recommendations of these evaluations, changes were made in the instructional package. -- Two experimental groups were used in piloting the instructional package. Two Grade Two classes of environmental studies and their teachers took part in the study. -- Statistical analyses of the pretest/posttest results showed that significant learning had taken place between the administration of the two tests. It was reasonable to conclude the this learning was brought about by the intervening use of the instructional package. A questionnaire was also used to evaluate the instructional unit. The Grade Two environmental studies teachers and the chairman of the school board's committee on environmental studies who evaluated the instructional package, Elliot Lake, Our Community, highly recommended it for use in the Grade Two environmental studies course.
