A Pilot Program for Recruiting and Orienting High School Seniors as Prospective Industrial Arts Teachers. Final Report.
Harris, Rayford L.
The purpose of this pilot program was to test a method of orienting and recruiting high school seniors as prospective industrial arts teachers. Students in grade 11 were identified by contacting administrators, guidance personnel, and industrial arts teachers in 35 Virginia high schools. From these contacts 48 students from 13 schools were selected; of these 24 attended an experimental summer institute and the remainder served as a control group. Students attending the institute participated in classes, demonstrations, field trips, and conferences which were devoted to the theory, philosophy, and purposes of industrial arts. Evaluation findings included: (1) All 48 students completed high school by the end of the summer, (2) 11 from the experimental group majored in college industrial arts, (3) 3 from the control group majored in college industrial arts, (4) 20 from the experimental group enrolled in college, and (5) 11 from the control group enrolled in college.
