DEVELOPING PROPER ATTITUDES TOWARD EYE PROTECTION IN THE SCHOOL SHOP, A RESEARCH REPORT.
SCHAEFER, CARL J.; AND OTHERS
TWO METHODS OF IMPLEMENTING SCHOOL SHOP EYE PROTECTION PROGRAMS WERE INVESTIGATED TO DETERMINE THE MORE EFFECTIVE FOR DEVELOPING FAVORABLE AND LASTING STUDENT ATTITUDES. TWO INDEPENDENT SAMPLES, TOTALING 76, WERE DRAWN FROM THE TENTH GRADE VOCATIONAL MACHINE SHOP STUDENTS AND FROM COLLEGE STUDENTS ENROLLED IN AN ENGINEERING MACHINE SHOP COURSE. THE EXPERIMENTAL, CONTROL, AND FORCED GROUPS AT BOTH AGE LEVELS WERE GIVEN (1) A TAPE-RECORDED INTRODUCTION TO EYE SAFETY, (2) A PRETEST ATTITUDE SCALE, (3) SAFETY GLASSES, AND (4) A POST-TEST ATTITUDE SCALE. AFTER THEY WERE GIVEN SAFETY GLASSES, THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP WAS SHOWN A FILM, "IT'S UP TO YOU." THE FORCED GROUP WAS REQUIRED TO WEAR SAFETY GLASSES IN THE SHOP FULL-TIME. THE FILM PRODUCED NO SIGNIFICANT ATTITUDE CHANGE IN THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP. THERE WAS NO SIGNIFICANT ATTITUDE CHANGE IN THE FORCED GROUPS. SUPPLEMENTARY TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED IF SIGNIFICANT FAVORABLE AND LASTING CHANGES IN ATTITUDE ARE TO BE ACHIEVED. A FILM REACTION SURVEY FORM, A FORM FOR EVALUATING SAFETY GLASSES, AND A TALLY SHEET FOR RECORDING THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS WEARING SAFETY GLASSES ARE INCLUDED. (EM)
