Development and Use of Subject Matter Materials for Vocational Education in Agriculture.
Jacks, Lloyd P.
To determine how the Subject Matter Service (SMS) of the Agricultural Education Department at Mississippi State University could more effectively meet the needs of vocational agriculture teachers, this study focused on three problems: (1) evaluation of materials developed by the SMS, (2) determination of sources and uses of teaching materials, and (3) determination of teacher preferences for new subject matter materials. Utilizing the description method with the group-interview technique, the study obtained data from 266 experienced teachers. Several recommendations are presented which focus on visual aids, revision of materials, format changes, and teacher guides related to the subject matter references. Results of the study show that current activities are not meeting teacher needs. Consequently the SMS must be geared to keep abreast of the growing needs of teachers by expanding facilities and personnel. (GB)
