A Comparison of Technical Graphic Arts Competencies Needed by High School Journalism and Graphic Arts Teachers in Indiana.
Deady, John Joseph
It was the purpose of this study to provide empirical information necessary in planning for future pre-service and in-service teacher education in journalism and graphic arts education. The empirical information took the form of a rating of 97 technical graphic arts competencies, which were judged by both groups of educators. These competencies were subdivided into eight categories within the research instrument. A census of Indiana journalism teachers and advisers and graphic arts teachers at the high school level comprised the population chosen for the study. Identical questionnaires were mailed to both groups. An assessment of the responses of graphic arts teachers indicated they needed to possess a higher degree of understanding of the 97 variables included in the research instrument than journalism personnel. Both groups indicated a need for technical arts competencies but at different levels of importance. The responses of both the journalism and graphic arts teachers need further investigation in order to isolate and rank the responses, according to their importance, for future curriculum development.
