AbstractThe purpose of this project was to develop an instructional unit on the "Micmacs of Newfoundland" to supplement the junior and senior high school social studies program particularly in Grade 9 and Level I. The unit includes a student handbook, teacher handbook and a 30 minute video based on Micmac culture in Newfoundland today. The need for the unit was established through informal and formal means. -- The evaluation of the unit was both formative and summative in nature. First it was examined by content, media/technical and learning specialists for their evaluations and as a result of their criticisms and suggestions, revisions were made at various stages during the development. Pilot testing was carried out with a small group of Level I students, the purpose being to find specific sections of the unit that needed strengthening or improvement before going on to complete the final product. Validation testing was later done at two different schools involving 47 students. The results of the pretest and posttest were analyzed using three forms of data analysis and found to be positive. The conclusion was that the objectives of the unit were met and that it was a successful instructional unit.
