EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF USING SPECIALIZED INSTRUCTORS IN PROVIDING OCCUPATIONAL TRAINING FOR INDUSTRIAL JOBS FOR HIGH SCHOOL VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE STUDENTS.
ROBERTS, ROY W.; AND OTHERS
AN EVALUATION WAS MADE OF THE USE OF SPECIAL INSTRUCTORS TO SUPPLEMENT DAY-SCHOOL INSTRUCTION IN VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE. TRAINING IN THE SPECIALIZED AREAS OF ARC WELDING AND BLUEPRINT INTERPRETATION WAS GIVEN FOR A 6-WEEK PERIOD BY SPECIAL INSTRUCTORS TO 10 MALE STUDENTS IN THE 12TH GRADE. CLASS DISCUSSIONS, READING ASSIGNMENTS, WRITTEN AND ORAL TESTS, LABORATORY PRACTICE, AND THREE FIELD TRIPS WERE INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM. SPECIAL CONSULTANTS, COMPETENCY TESTS, INTERVIEWS WITH THE STUDENTS AND THEIR EMPLOYERS, AND EVALUATIONS OF THE PROJECT BY THE STUDENTS WERE THE MEASURING INSTRUMENTS USED FOR EVALUATION OF THE PROGRAM. STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE SPECIAL COURSE WERE FOUND TO BE ABLE TO MAKE OCCUPATIONAL CHOICES. FOLLOWUP STUDIES WILL BE NECESSARY TO DETERMINE THE STABILITY IN EMPLOYMENT OF THE STUDENTS. THE EXTENSION OF THIS PROGRAM INTO DAY-SCHOOL CLASSES IS SUGGESTED. (RS)
