A ROLE ANALYSIS OF THE BEGINNING TEACHER OF VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE IN OHIO, A RESEARCH REPORT OF A GRADUATE STUDY. RESEARCH SERIES IN AGRICULTURAL EDUCATION.
TODD, HOLLIS E.; WOODIN, RALPH J.
THE SUCCESSFUL OR "MOST EFFECTIVE" TEACHER IN AN EARLIER STUDY WAS USED AS A ROLE MODEL FOR MEASURING ROLE PERCEPTIONS OF BEGINNING VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE TEACHERS. DATA COLLECTED FROM 25 BEGINNING TEACHERS AND THEIR ADMINISTRATORS IDENTIFIED BEGINNING AND LATER ROLE PERCEPTIONS, DIFFERENCES BETWEEN BEGINNING AND EXPERIENCED TEACHERS, DIFFERENCES BETWEEN ROLE PERCEPTION AND PERFORMANCE, AND RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN ROLE PERCEPTIONS AND PROFESSIONAL DIFFICULTIES. THE CONCLUSIONS WERE THAT (1) BEGINNING TEACHERS ENTERED THE LOCAL VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE DEPARTMENT WITH A GOOD UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR ROLES, (2) THEIR ROLE PERCEPTIONS CHANGED LITTLE DURING THE FIRST YEAR, (3) THEY WERE SIMILAR TO THE ROLE PERCEPTIONS OF EXPERIENCED TEACHERS, (4) ROLE PERCEPTIONS IN TEACHING EXCEEDED ACTUAL PERFORMANCE, (5) THERE WAS SIGNIFICANT AGREEMENT BETWEEN ROLE PERCEPTIONS AND PERFORMANCE REGARDING RELATIONSHIPS WITH SCHOOL AND ADMINISTRATION, TEACHING FARM MECHANICS, PUBLIC RELATIONS, AND GUIDANCE AND COUNSELING, BUT DISAGREEMENT BETWEEN PERCEPTION AND PERFORMANCE IN CLASSROOM TEACHING, AND (6) THERE WAS NO DISCERNIBLE PATTERN OF RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ROLE PERCEPTIONS AND PROFESSIONAL DIFFICULTIES EXPERIENCED. RECOMMENDATIONS INCLUDED (1) CONTINUING A FLEXIBLE PRESERVICE PROGRAM, (2) INCREASING FIELD EXPERIENCE ORIENTATION, (3) CONTINUING ASSISTANCE AFTER THE START OF TEACHING, (4) PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES FOR OBSERVATION AFTER 2 OR 3 MONTHS OF TEACHING, AND (5) MAKING FURTHER STUDY OF THIS AREA.
