This second volume of a four-volume evaluation of the 1988-89 New York City School Community Education Program (also known as the Umbrella Program) comprises reports evaluating nine innovative elementary school projects on social, ethnical, and environmental studies, four of which included staff development workshops. Evaluation sources included student preprogram and postprogram test outcomes, writing samples, teacher and student questionnaires, and the number of acceptances of participants into special high schools. Overall, the program was not as successful in meeting its stated objectives as in previous years. Each report contains a brief project overview, describes the research methodology, presents the findings, and provides recommendations for improvement. The following programs are evaluated: (1) The Museum Connection; (2) Peace Education Program; (3) E.C.O.L.E.--Education and Camping Opportunity Through Learning Environment; (4) Urban Environmental Program for Elementary School Pupils; (5) Star Labs; (6) Wave Hill Urban Environmental Program; (7) Lenox-Hill Environmental Education Program; (8) Goddard-Riverside Environmental Education Program; and (9) Ethnic Awareness Program. Statistical data are included on 14 tables. Each report also includes examples of evaluation instruments. (FMW)
