An Analysis of Teacher Education Innovations with Recommendations for Their Utilization in the Professional Preparation of Prospective Industrial Arts Teachers.
Frye, Bill J.
The major purpose of this study was to investigate and provide relevant information on the use of innovative practices, such as methodology, teaching skills, etc., by industrial arts teacher educators who teach professional courses. Data were obtained from a synthesis of information retrieved from practicing industrial arts teacher educators and from a review of related literature. An initial survey involving 161 educators revealed that only video tape recorders, micro-teaching, and field experience prior to student teaching were used substantially. From this data, nine other questionnaires asking for specific procedures and recommendations associated with the use of the innovation were developed, and industrial arts departments received from one to three of them. Recommendations could only be developed for the video tape recorder, micro-teaching, field experience prior to student teaching, and a limited treatment of interaction analysis due to the limited use of these innovations by industrial arts teacher educators. It is recommended that more emphasis be placed on these innovations by the teacher educators. (Author/GEB)
