THE REPORT OF THE MICHIGAN STUDY OF INDUSTRIAL TEACHER COMPETENCE.
FORD, ANDREW F.; SILVIUS, G. HAROLD
THE PROBLEM OF THIS STUDY WAS TO DETERMINE PRACTICES AND POLICIES FOR KEEPING INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS IN MICHIGAN QUALIFIED WITHIN THEIR EVOLVING TECHNICAL AREAS OF SPECIALIZATION. IT REQUIRED (1) AN INVESTIGATION OF DESIRABLE GOALS AND PROGRAM NEEDS BY ORGANIZATIONAL LEVELS, (2) RECOMMENDED PRACTICES AND POLICIES BASED ON CONCLUSIONS DRAWN FROM DATA, AND (3) THE FORMULATION OF PROPOSALS THAT MIGHT BE SUBMITTED TO SELECTED FOUNDATIONS OR GOVERNMENT AGENCIES FOR THEIR HELP IN IMPROVING THE COMPETENCE OF INDUSTRIAL TEACHERS. AN INTERVIEW FORM WAS DEVELOPED TO GET THE OPINIONS OF 56 PEOPLE WHO WERE (1) REPRESENTATIVES OF BUSINESS, LABOR, COMMUNITY COLLEGES, AND TECHNICAL INSTITUTES, (2) PROFESSORS OF INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION, (3) TEACHERS, (4) COUNSELORS, AND (5) ADMINISTRATORS. THERE WERE 29 QUESTIONS IN THE INTERVIEW FORM, 20 PERTAINING TO CURRICULUM AND NINE PERTAINING TO TEACHER COMPETENCE. ON THE BASIS OF DATA COLLECTED AND SHOWN IN SUMMARY FORM FOR EACH QUESTION, EIGHT PROPOSALS FOR AN ACTION PROGRAM WERE DRAFTED. THESE INCLUDED (1) AN EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAM TO RECRUIT AND PREPARE NEEDED INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS FOR DETROIT-METROPOLITAN AREA SCHOOLS AND THE ADJOINING COMMUNITY COLLEGES, (2) A PROJECT FOR PROVIDING MORE ADEQUATE PREPARATION FOR INSERVICE INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION TEACHERS, AND (3) A PROGRAM AT WAYNE STATE UNIVERSITY APPLIED MANAGEMENT AND TECHNOLOGY CENTER TO UPDATE AND EXTEND INDUSTRIAL TEACHER COMPETENCY.
