The Successful Teacher in Technical Education: The Preparation of the Successful Teacher.
Storm, George
The purposes of this study were to identify success factors in technical education teaching and to obtain subject matter recommendations for the improvement of technical teacher education. A national population of technical education directors offering post-secondary technical education programs in 1963 under Title III of the National Defense Education Act was used as a source of evaluation information of 304 technical teachers. One hundred and thirty-eight of these technical teachers also furnished information. Separate questionnaires were developed for the director group and the teacher group. In evaluating differences between average high and low success teachers, the average high success teacher earned $2,636 more annually, had more students in his classes, belonged to fewer technical and professional organizations, and lead more community youth organizations than did the average low success teacher. There were no differences between the high and low success teachers for (1) sex, (2) major technical teaching fields, (3) age at start of teaching career, (4) teaching load, (5) membership in community service organizations, (6) marital status, and (7) cultural interests. This Ed.D. thesis was submitted to Oregon State University. (EM)
