Industrial Arts Leadership Development Project, 1977-78. Final Report.
Montclair State Coll., Upper Montclair, NJ.
The Industrial Arts Leadership Development Project was conducted to (1) provide inservice training for teachers to improve the quality of instruction and supervision; (2) provide inservice training for minorities and persons with limited English capability; and (3) provide leadership development for inservice teachers, service staff, and administrators. Thirty-five participants were selected through a combination of geographic, performance, and potential criteria. Following a needs assessment and pretest, participants attended eight seminars, including orientation, vocational education planning, funding skills, status of industrial arts, technology, concerns in industrial arts, special needs education, and interpersonal relationships. Following a posttest it was concluded that it would be advisable to develop a similar activity for industrial arts supervisors. In addition, it was concluded that the advisory council approach by the state's industrial arts teacher education institutions is of significant value and that a cooperative effort among the industrial arts profession, the colleges, and the state division of vocational education is essential to the success of personal development projects. It was also concluded that there are many needs in industrial arts which remain unaddressed. (Appendixes include the seminar content summaries, pretest and posttest instruments, needs assessment instrument, project evaluation instrument, project budget summary, and participant project evaluations).
