Handbook on Recruitment of Potential Industrial Arts Teachers.
Foley, Dennis J., Jr.
The purposes of this national study were to investigate practices used by colleges in the recruitment and selection of potential industrial arts teachers, to identify factors which influence students to enter industrial arts teaching, and to devise recruitment and selection procedures. Questionnaire data were collected from 270 college students and 174 college department heads in a population of 200 colleges. Some of the 20 most effective recruitment measures identified by department heads were: (1) contacts with industrial arts teachers, (2) high school visits by faculty, (3) activities of industrial arts majors, (4) career days and related activities, (5) project contests, and (6) contacts with high school counselors. Some of the 18 advantageous reasons for student's choosing industrial arts majors were: (1) personal enjoyment of industrial arts activities, (2) satisfactions expected from teaching, (3) contributions to students, (4) enjoyment of young people, (5) fringe benefits and, (6) employment conditions. The student questionnaire and a checklist of recruitment practices are appended. (EM)
