Abstract

The purpose of this project was to develop an instructional unit on the history of the town of Trinity, Trinity Bay, Newfoundland to supplement the Grade Five social studies program in Newfoundland schools. A needs assessment was the first step in the design model that was used to develop the unit. The results of this assessment indicated that a need existed for the production of materials on this topic. A slide-tape format was chosen as the preferred medium. -- The instructional unit was evaluated by media specialists, learner specialists, and a content specialist. As a result of their criticism and suggestions, revisions were made at various stages of development. The project was then piloted in two schools. The results of the pretest and posttest were analyzed using three forms of data analysis. The results of this analysis were positive and indicated that the slide-tape presentation, Trinity - An Early Trading Centre, is ready for utilization in the Grade Five Social Studies program throughout the province.
