    Description

    The California Department of Forestry's Team Teaching Fire Prevention Program consists of small-group discussions, slides or films, and a visit by Smokey Bear to school classrooms. In a survey, teachers and principals who had experienced the program responded favorably to it. The conduct by team members also received approval. The limited criticisms of the Program centered around apparent deviations from the established format. In a separate study, students exposed to the Program scored higher in tests of their under-standing of fire prevention principles than did those who had not been exposed. Grade level and socio-economic status affected test performance. No differences, however, were observed in terms of attitude scores.
