Review and Synthesis of Research on Consumer and Homemaking Education. Information Series No. 33.
Bailey, Lena C.
The 110 research reports, papers, and other references written primarily during 1966-69 were reviewed under these categories: (1) Consumer Education, (2) Disadvantaged, (3) Homemaking, (4) Teacher Education, and (5) Research Methodology. Reasons for the lack of consumer education research may be that the renewed emphasis has taken place in the past two years and this component is interwoven into various home economic subject matter areas so that it is not readily available. The review indicated that it is possible to develop and implement programs that benefit the disadvantaged, but many of the disadvantaged studies should be replicated to increase the validity of results and to make additional recommendations. Additional research needed in the homemaking program area includes the development of new methods of teaching, innovative instructional materials, evaluation techniques, model programs, the affective domain, and process of learning, while areas of teacher education needing further research include problems related to recruitment, counseling students, adaptation of modern technological devices, and ongoing research of programs, teachers, and materials. Related documents are available as ED 039 336 and ED 043 773. (SB)
