Evaluation of the Industrial Arts Teacher Education Curriculum at Peru State College.
Weiner, Donald A.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the total industrial arts teacher education curriculum at Peru State College which consists of industrial arts education, professional education, and general education. Questionnaires were sent to the 103 graduates of the industrial arts teacher education curriculum and to the supervisors of the graduates employed in public schools. Some findings were: (1) The greatest proportion of the graduates gave an above average rating to the industrial arts objectives, goals, and courses, (2) The need to lengthen the period of student teaching was listed by the graduates the greatest number of times in their recommendation for improving the professional semester, and (3) The industrial arts graduates did anticipate a future need for the general education courses of speech, mathematics, English Composition I, health, and English Composition II. It was recommended that a survey be conducted to determine the practicing needs of industrial arts teachers in Nebraska, Iowa, and Kansas where the greatest number of Peru State College industrial arts graduates are teaching.
