Trade and Industrial Teacher Education: A Research Critique and Model for Action. Vocational-Industrial Education Research Report No. I.
Bjorkquist, David C.; And Others
A critique of research in trade and industrial teacher education was prepared from a bibliography of 35 studies completed between 1963 and 1967. Some of the conclusions based on the studies are: (1) A sizeable number of the research has been conducted by students as part of a doctoral program, (2) Recent increases in federal funding have not seemed to greatly improve the sophistication of research which has been directed specifically toward trade and industrial teacher education, and (3) The majority of the studies have been concerned with either the teacher education process or the teacher education product. The critique of research serves as a foundation for a model designed to better facilitate the study of trade and industrial teacher education--the model represents the existing teacher education process which may be viewed as a general teacher education model. However, it provides a unique categorical system of process and effects as well as a series of interdependencies in trade and industrial teacher education. The simplicity of the model permits one to develop as much detail as necessary to study a particular problem and provides a starting point from which research models can be developed. (HC)
