The main purpose of this study was to determine the effect that the participation of the secondary teacher in the Lincoln, Nebraska, public schools in community activities and organizations has upon his classroom teaching. This involved three major problems: 1) to determine the extent to which the classroom teacher enters into community activities and organizations; 2) to establish a basis for the evaluation of the work of the classroom teacher in relationship to community activity; and 3) to evaluate the work of the community-minded teacher relative to the established criteria and to draw conclusions therefrom.
