Effective Personnel Control Practices Employed by Industrial Arts Teachers in the Secondary School Classrooms of the Metropolitan Areas of Colorado.
Svendsen, Clarence Roger
To determine significant principles underlying effective personnel control in the classroom-laboratory of the secondary school industrial arts program, a questionnaire was formulated consisting of a biographical information form and a form soliciting teacher reaction to current pupil control practices. Questionnaires were completed by 160 (70 percent response) Colorado industrial arts teachers considered by their building principal to be outstanding. Findings, reported in graphical and parenthetical form, include: (1) Considerable agreement and empirical evidence was revealed to support the pupil control practices listed in the inventory form, (2) Some commonality existed throughout the practices reviewed, (3) Ranking of the least supported practices by the respondents had unanimity of agreement, and (4) Statements about student participation in establishing disciplinary policies and critical evaluations of teaching by tape recording instructional sessions were rejected by the respondents. It was concluded that more emphasis should be placed upon teacher-pupil relationships in the teacher education programs, and a need exists for more inservice activity relative to the personnel control problems. This Ed.D. dissertation was submitted to the University of Northern Colorado. (GR)
