Status of and a Proposed Program for Industrial Arts in the Public Secondary Schools of Tennessee with Implications for Teacher Education.
Ephraim, John
Data from the State Department of Education, along with information forms from industrial arts teachers for the 1967-68 school year, were studied: (1) to ascertain the status of industrial arts teachers and programs in the secondary schools of Tennessee, (2) to determine a desirable secondary industrial arts program, and (3) to point out implications for industrial art teacher education at East Tennessee State University. Approximately 80 percent of the 394 industrial art teachers completed information forms. A desirable industrial arts program was determined by a jury of 103 industrial arts educators and supervisors from the southeastern United States through the use of a rating scale. The eight content areas determined for industrial arts in junior high schools were mechanical drawing, electricity, general metals, woodworking, plastics, printing, home mechanics, and ceramics; nine areas selected for senior high schools were mechanical drawing, electricity, general metals, woodworking, printing, machine shop, plastics, auto mechanics, and radio. It was concluded that: (1) the industrial arts program in Tennessee was not adequate, (2) industrial arts teachers of Tennessee were qualified to implement the improved program, and (3) the industrial arts teacher education program at East Tennessee State University was adequate to prepare teachers for the "desirable program."
