Review and Synthesis of Research on Home Economics Education.
Nelson, Helen Y.
The 102 reports of research in home economics education for the period 1965-1969 selected for review were obtained from colleges and universities, state research coordinating units, professional journals, and the ERIC Clearinghouse for Vocational and Technical Education. Reports selected were reviewed under the following categories: (1) Philosophy and Objectives, (2) Manpower Needs and Employment Opportunities, (3) Curriculum Development, (4) Educational Programs, (5) Instructional Materials and Devices, (6) Learning Process and Teaching Methods, (7) Student Personnel Services, (8) Facilities and Equipment, (9) Teacher Education, (10) Administration and Supervision, (11) Evaluation, and (12) Research. Research has improved since the 1965 review and sythesis, but there is a continuing need for carefully designed home economics research based on theoretically-derived hypotheses to fill research gaps. More long-range research programs focusing on significant problems and an increase in the amount of time devoted to research are needed. Materials prior to 1965 are reviewed in ED 011 563. (SB)
