Essentials for Implementing Practical Subjects in Zambia Primary Schools. African Studies in Curriculum Development & Evaluation No. 82.
An investigation was made of the status of the teaching of practical subjects (industrial arts) in Zambia primary schools. Lecturers and students at teachers' colleges and primary school personnel agreed to interviews and responded to questionnaires which sought to identify problems in teaching vocational subjects. Information and data were sought on the quality of practical subjects teachers, workshop facilities, and instructional materials. This report provides information on: (1) the problem of academic versus vocational education at the primary level; (2) recent writings on the implementation of practical subjects in the schools, practical subjects teachers, and practical subjects facilities and materials; (3) the design and methodology of the study; and (4) findings on the qualifications of practical subjects teachers, organization of practical subjects workshops and use of materials, and preparation of practical subjects teachers. Recommendations are made on the preparation of practical subjects teachers and improving the quality of practical subjects workshops and materials. (JD)
