REVIEW AND SYNTHESIS OF RESEARCH IN HOME ECONOMICS EDUCATION.
CHADDERDON, HESTER; FANSLOW, ALYCE M.
PROFESSIONAL MAGAZINES, RESEARCH REVIEWS, AND 500 THESES AND DISSERTATIONS WERE CONSIDERED IN SELECTING 159 RESEARCH STUDIES FOR REVIEW. STUDIES CONCERNED WITH TEACHER EDUCATION WERE INCLUDED BUT ADULT EDUCATION WAS EXCLUDED. THE PERIOD FROM 1959 TO 1966 IS COVERED. TOPICS ARE (1) PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES, (2) MANPOWER NEEDS AND EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES, (3) EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS, (4) INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS AND DEVICES, (5) LEARNING PROCESSES AND TEACHING MATERIALS, (6) STUDENT PERSONNEL SERVICES, (7) FACILITIES AND EQUIPMENT, (8) TEACHER EDUCATION, (9) ADMINISTRATION AND SUPERVISION, (10) EVALUATION, AND (11) RESEARCH. THE AUTHORS CONCLUDED THAT PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE IN COLLECTING AND ANALYZING DATA RELATING TO IMPORTANT PROBLEMS, BUT RESOURCES SHOULD BE USED TO BETTER ADVANTAGE. MANY THESES HAVE ONLY LOCAL IMPLICATIONS. STATISTICAL CONSULTANTS AND RESEARCHERS IN OTHER AREAS OF VOCATIONAL EDUCATION SHOULD BE UTILIZED. THEORIES SHOULD BE REEXAMINED IN LIGHT OF THE RESEARCH FINDINGS IN EDUCATION, PSYCHOLOGY, AND SOCIOLOGY. THERE IS A NEED FOR GREATER CREATIVITY, LEADING TO EXPLORATORY STUDIES AS THE FIRST STEP IN PROBLEM SOLVING. (MS)
