REPORT ON THE SUMMER 1966 INDUSTRIAL ARTS INSTITUTES.
HACKETT, D.F.; AND OTHERS
DURING THE SUMMER OF 1966, THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION ENGAGED THE CONSORTIUM OF PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS TO CONDUCT A STUDY OF THE NATIONAL DEFENSE EDUCATION ACT (NDEA) INDUSTRIAL ARTS INSTITUTES THEN IN PROGRESS. TO COLLECT INFORMATION FOR PLANNING FUTURE INSTITUTES, A COMMITTEE MEMBER VISITED EACH INSTITUTE FOR 2 DAYS, AND UTILIZED A LIST OF SUBJECTIVE CRITERIA, QUESTIONS DIRECTED TO THE INSTITUTE DIRECTOR AND THE PARTICIPANTS, AND A QUESTIONNAIRE COMPLETED BY THE PARTICIPANTS AT THE END OF THE INSTITUTE. THE COMMITTEE ASSUMED THAT (1) FUTURE INSTITUTE DIRECTORS WERE INTERESTED IN LEARNING OF SUCCESSFUL PRACTICES, PROCEDURES, AND PITFALLS, AND (2) THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION WAS CONCERNED WITH THE EFFECTIVENESS OF NDEA TITLE XI INSTITUTES. SOME OF THE 31 RECOMMENDATIONS WERE -- (1) DIRECTORS SHOULD WEIGH THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF ASSUMING TEACHING RESPONSIBILITIES BECAUSE OF THE UNPREDICTABLE DEMANDS UPON THEIR TIME, (2) DIRECTORS SHOULD INSURE THAT INSTRUCTIONAL, LIVING, AND RECREATIONAL FACILITIES BE AVAILABLE, (3) SOME FORM OF WEEKLY EVALUATION SHOULD BE CONDUCTED TO AID PARTICIPANTS AND STAFF, (4) GUEST SPEAKERS SHOULD BE FAMILIAR WITH THE OBJECTIVES OF THE INSTITUTE, (5) INDUSTRIAL VISITS SHOULD PROVIDE FOR STUDY AND NOT BE JUST TOURS, AND (6) INSTRUCTION SHOULD REFLECT THE LATEST AND BEST IN EDUCATIONAL THEORY.
