The globally unique and fragile limestone cedar glade habitat found primarily in Middle Tennessee and a few other localities in the southeastern
Results/Conclusions . Student knowledge and attitudes about both the cedar glades and the scientific method were measured through pre and posttest design. Preliminary findings show a significant positive difference in knowledge for both experimental and control classes but no difference in attitude for either group. With the pre and posttest specifically designed for this study, it appears that students learned as much about the cedar glades using the developed curriculum in the traditional class setting, as compared to students involved in an additional field experience.
