Involvement of the Industrial Arts Teacher In Planning Industrial Arts Facilities.
Smith, Irving G.
Secondary school industrial arts teachers, industrial arts teacher educators, superintendents, and architects were surveyed to determine what role the secondary school industrial arts teacher should have in the planning of industrial arts facilities. The findings indicated that teacher educators considered it more important for industrial arts teachers to be involved than did either superintendents or industrial arts teachers. It was concluded that: (1) all three educator groups believed industrial arts teachers should be involved in determining educational objectives, course offerings, and certain physical specifications, (2) professional preparation had little relationship to opinions of teachers regarding involvement of industrial arts teachers in planning, and (3) previous involvement of industrial arts teachers in planning had slight relationship to the opinion of superintendents concerning the involvement of industrial arts teachers in planning. Architects indicated: (1) The extent of involvement of industrial arts teachers in planning has been limited, and professional preparation inadequate, and (2) Industrial arts teachers should review and evaluate the architect's preliminary plans. This Ed.D. dissertation was submitted to the University of Missouri. (GR)
