This report was submitted in conjunction with the slide/tape productions, Logging with the A.N.D. Company 1909-1960 and Logging with Price (Nfld.): Summer Operations. -- The programs were originally produced to fulfill the need for Newfoundland instructional materials on logging in the Grade Six geography program. -- The initial production stages the programs were evaluated by professional foresters, former loggers, a classroom teacher, and the developer's faculty advisor. -- For the Formative Evaluation the programs were tested with Grade Six classes at elementary schools in Buchans and Grand Falls. The testing results showed that the desired levels of learning had not been achieved. The developer and faculty advisor re-examined the programs and revisions were made. -- In the Summative Evaluation the developer tested the programs with a Grade Five class in Goulds. The results were encouraging, but the desired level of learning was not fulfilled. Nevertheless, based on the testing results, the positive reactions of the audiences, and the suggested use of the programs by the classroom teacher in Goulds, the developer recommends that the programs be used as an integral part of the logging unit in the Grade Five geography program.
