Insitute for Home Economics Teacher Educators on Preparing Teachers for Occupational Programs. Final Report.
Hill, Alberta D.
Thirty selected home economics teacher educators from 24 states participated in a 3-week summer institute which was devoted to (1) the identification and clarification of philosophies of vocational education affecting teacher education in home economics, (2) teacher qualifications, (3) program development, and (4) guidelines for evaluating teacher effectiveness as a basis for experimentation and revision of teacher education. The institute program consisted of talks by consultants, reports of successful programs, field trips, and study of resource materials. Each participant worked individually or in small groups to develop a specific teacher education plan, of which summaries are given. A more complete description of 14 plans are included in the appendix. Followup evaluation showed all plans to be in action. Major ideas and conclusions evolving from the institute are listed according to: Purposes and Philosophies of Home Economics Education, Cooperation and Integration Within Vocational Education, Leadership and Communication, Research Needs, Methods and Materials, Teacher Preparation and Growth. References, models and questionnaires are included for several plans. (FP)
