Abstract : The Doing It in Deutschland programs were developed to teach first-term enlisted soldiers in USAREUR the knowledge and skills needed to (1) use public transportation in Germany, (2) eat out on the economy, (3) use USAREUR community resources, (4) shop in German stores, and (5) understand the legal aspects of living in Germany. The programs are competency-based, multi-media programs that utilize two delivery systems: first, a mass media approach with AFN radio and Stars and Stripes newspaper and, second, Army education centers. The programs were tested and formatively evaluated in controlled settings. The findings in this report subsequently served as the database for decisions regarding modifications for program revisions.
