Guidelines for Development and Use of Selected Types of Audiovisual Materials in Home Economics.
Gould, Grovalynn Foreman
The study was designed to encourage home economics teachers to use audiovisual materials for more effective classroom communication, and to provide information which would assist them in developing selected types of audiovisual materials. Seventy-eight vocational home economics teachers were questioned to determine audiovisual practices, equipment available and areas of teacher concern. As a result guidelines were developed for the use of slides, overhead transparencies, programmed instruction, and motion pictures. Sample materials in the subjects of foods, child care, and clothing were available on a loan arrangement to teachers who participated in the study. After teachers had used guidelines and the sample materials for slightly more than a semester, a final questionnaire was sent for evaluation. More than half of the teachers used audiovisual materials for motivation, small group instruction, and large group instruction, while less than half used the materials for evaluation and individual instruction. Teacher response indicated that the materials were helpful in updating them on developments on audiovisual instruction and inspiring them to try new methods and materials. Many expressed interest in additional audiovisual instruction through summer or extension courses. A bibliography, the questionnaire, and the guidelines for audiovisual instruction in home economics, are included in the document. (FP)
