The Current Status and Possible Trends in Teaching Industrial Arts Wood Information at Teacher Education Institutions.
Coleman, Jay Mario
To investigate the present status of the wood area in selected teacher education institutions and to discover possible trends which might be useful in improving the college wood programs, a questionnaire was developed and sent to 122 industrial arts instructors, and the results were compared on a percentage basis. Specific findings were that: (1) A majority of the instructors had some work experience in related industries, (2) The related information emphasized most in the first skill-oriented wood course was safety, tool identification, adhesives, abrasives, lumbering, wood identification, and board feet computation, (3) Cabinet making or furniture construction was offered most often, (4) Most instructors felt that the program should include a study of wood, its industry, and its products, and (5) Approximately three-fourths felt that the innovative programs had meaningful implications toward the college. Some conclusions were that the present instructors should be capable teachers because of their experience, that the learning experiences of the wood project should be changed, and that wood technology will become a major course offering in the college wood curriculum.
