ACTIVITY PATTERNS OF MIDDLE CLASS WOMEN IN THEIR MID YEARS--WITH IMPLICATIONS FOR ADULT EDUCATION.
ROSENSTEIN, BETTY L.
AN INVESTIGATION OF THE INTERRELATIONSHIPS OF WOMEN, THEIR LIFE STYLE AND PAST EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES, WAS MADE OF WOMEN BETWEEN 21 AND 72 YEARS OF AGE. MAILED QUESTIONNAIRES OBTAINED DATA FROM 337 RESPONDENTS ON WHAT THEY WERE DOING AND WHY, IF THEY LIKED WHAT THEY WERE DOING, AND HOW PAST EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES INFLUENCED THEIR ACTIVITIES. MOST WOMEN WERE SATISFIED WITH THEIR ACTIVITIES IN HOMEMAKING AND HELPING HUSBANDS. OTHER ACTIVITIES VARIED ACCORDING TO AGE AND EDUCATIONAL LEVELS AND WERE ENGAGED IN FOR PERSONAL SATISFACTION AND GRATIFICATION. DEFINITE RELATIONSHIPS WERE ESTABLISHED BETWEEN EDUCATIONAL LEVELS AND CONTINUING EDUCATION PLANS, NON HOMEMAKING ACTIVITIES, AND IMPORTANCE OF ROLES OUTSIDE OF THE HOME. RELATIONSHIPS WERE ALSO FOUND BETWEEN COLLEGE MAJOR AND SATISFACTION WITH HIGHER EDUCATION, VOLUNTEER WORK, AND NATURE OF PRESENT OCCUPATION. ADULT EDUCATION ATTRACTED THE MOST WOMEN IN COMPARISON WITH OTHER EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES. AMONG THE 46-50 YEAR OLDS, PARTICULARLY, NEGATIVE ATTITUDES WERE OBSERVED TOWARD ALL ACTIVITIES EXCEPT JOBS AND HELPING HUSBANDS. THIS ED.D.
