Abstract:

This report describes a study examining user reaction and dissemination strategies involving the student textbook, Your Chance to Live SM3-12, which was designed to replace the more technical, adult-oriented text, Personal and Family Survival SM3-11. The content, format, and emphasis of the new manual represents a unique approach to the teaching of preparedness information. The text is often humorous, it is profusely illustrated, the type is large, stories are used as content vehicles, all in the hope of providing enough intrinsic appeal to motivate students to read the book and apply their knowledge effectively. The evaluation study was designed to provide formal feedback on user reaction to the manual and at the same time to collect useful information on the systems or methods used to disseminate the manuals to the districts and schools.
