APPRAISAL OF CURRICULUM MATERIALS DEVELOPED FOR USE BY SECONDARY HOME ECONOMICS TEACHERS.
HORN, FERN M.
AN APPRAISAL WAS MADE OF THE CLOTHING INSTRUCTION AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT CURRICULUM RESOURCE MATERIALS DEVELOPED FOR USE BY SECONDARY HOME ECONOMICS TEACHERS. PROCEDURES INCLUDED (1) A TEACHER SURVEY OF THE USES MADE OF RESOURCES AND (2) A PUPIL SURVEY WITH SPECIALLY PREPARED TEST INSTRUMENTS TO DETERMINE IF THE OBJECTIVES OF THE CLASSROOMS, GRADES 7-12, WHERE THE RESOURCE MATERIALS WERE USED WERE BEING FULFILLED. APPROXIMATELY 600 TEACHERS AND 6,000 STUDENTS FROM A VARIETY OF COMMUNITIES IN MINNESOTA PARTICIPATED. FROM AN ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTING DATA, IT WAS APPARENT THAT STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT AND INTELLECT WERE HIGHLY CORRELATED WITH THE FUNCTIONAL USAGE OF RESOURCE MATERIALS, AS THE USE MADE WAS A SIGNIFICANT POSITIVE FACTOR IN MEAN TEST SCORES OBTAINED. IT WAS NOTED, HOWEVER THAT MANY TEACHERS NEED HELP IN ORGANIZING THEIR CLASSROOMS TO ACCOMMODATE NEW INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS FOR CLOTHING AND CHILD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS. (JH)
