Some General Principles Useful in the Development of Effective 4-H Club Work.
Jayaramaiah, Karagada M.; And Others
A study was conducted to identify, examine and suggest a set of broad principles effective in the development of 4-H club programs in the United States and Tennessee. Eighty principles of successful 4-H Club work gleaned from related literature were tested in terms of: their acceptance as principles by two panels of experts; panel agreement to the way in which they were stated; and their relative importance to successful 4-H club work as seen by panel members. A mail questionnaire with the listing of the 80 principles was sent to every member of the National Panel and the State Panel. It was found that the two panels were in complete agreement with the selection of 57 items as valid principles. Another 14 approved by the National Panel were not favored by the State Panel. Seven items approved by the State Panel were disapproved by the national authorities. The finally accepted 57 principles were suggested for use by county agents as they seek to develop effective 4-H Club work. (Author/CK)
