Missouri Vocational Home Economics Teachers Perceived Use of Instructional Materials.
Martin, Betty B.; Quilling, Joan
A study was conducted to assess Missouri vocational home economics teachers' perceived use of instructional materials. A survey form, consisting of three sections (personal data, curriculum experience, and curriculum competencies), was sent to the total population of consumer homemaking and occupational home economics teachers in secondary schools in Missouri. Findings from the study include some of the following: many of the respondents had been teaching less than five years; a large number was employed in a school system of more than 900 pupils; more than one-fourth of the respondents reported no awareness of the Midwest Curriculum Consortium; almost half reported attending conferences and/or workshops during a two-year period; kits, visual aids, and curriculum guides were viewed as the major type of curriculum materials preferred to have available; respondents felt they were competent in stating student performance objectives and identifying unit concepts; and respondents felt they possessed the ability to adapt and prepare materials for the local setting.
