The Effect of In-Service Education and Resource Unit Components on Teacher and Student Learning. Research Series in Occupational Education No. 12.
Brown, William J., Jr.
This 2 x 4 factorial experiment involved 40 high school teachers of vocational agriculture and their sophomore students. The primary purpose was to question the effectiveness of providing inservice teacher education to upgrade the subject matter competence of teachers and furnishing them with resource units. The findings were that inservice education improved the subject matter competence of teachers but did not have a significant effect of student learning. Resource units were found to be of significant value in improving the subject matter competence of the teacher, but had little influence on student learning. A bibliography and sample resource unit are appended. (BC)
