A SECOND PURPOSE OF THE PROGRAM WAS TO STUDY IN SOME DEPTH THE ATTITUDES AND BEHAVIOR OF CINCINNATI NINTH GRADE STUDENTS WHO WERE EXPOSED TO ONE OF THE SPECIAL CURRICULUM UNITS AS PART OF THEIR STANDARD CIVICS CLASSES. A THIRD AND TANGENTIAL PURPOSE WAS TO WRITE ADDITIONAL TEXT MATERIALS FOR THE SEVENTH GRADE SPECIAL UNIT, UTILIZING GRADUATE STUDENTS IN A SPECIAL SEMINAR DESIGNED FOR THAT PURPOSE. TO ACHIEVE THE FIRST PURPOSE, THE DEMONSTRATION THAT THE CURRICULUM UNITS COULD BE ADAPTED IN LOCALITIES OTHER THAN CINCINNATI, THREE KEY CITIES WERE SELECTED.
