AbstractThe purpose of this study was to develop instructional material on women from the history of Newfoundland and Labrador. It was the developer's contention that the curriculum did not reflect accurately the existence and accomplishments of women from the history of Newfoundland and Labrador. An examination of various disciplines, namely, History, Anthropology, Folklore, and Literature showed the existance of scattered works which might be used. It was concluded from this investigation that (i) women have made a significant contribution (ii) documentation is scarce (iii) that which does exist is in need of collation (iv) no definitive work with regard to women from the history of Newfoundland and Labrador has been published. -- An examination was then made of the curriculum for Kindergarten to Grade Eleven with regard to the extent to which the topic women from the history of Newfoundland and Labrador has been covered. It was discovered that a distinct lack of information regarding women was found on all levels. -- A survey of twenty-five teachers of history in Grade Five was conducted. The findings confirmed that materials on women from Newfoundland and Labrador's past would be a welcome supplement to the course. The preferred medium was sound-filmstrip. Due to times and cost considerations the decision was made to limit production to the lives of two women; Mary Southcott and Georgina Stirling were chosen. -- Two packages were produced with evaluation made at various stages by learner specialists, media specialists and grade five students. A summative evaluation involved a three-group design with analysis of results including comparisons of means, examination of percentage of items correct and an item analysis. The results proved to be highly satisfactory. -- In summary, the two sound-slide programmes, "Mary Southcott" and "Georgina Stirling", are ready for use in the Social Studies programme of Grade Five.
