Identification of In-Service Personnel Development Needs in Career Awareness for Portland and Seattle Elementary Schools.
Syhlman, Bill Duane
To determine the professional in-service development needs of fourth, fifth, and sixth grade teachers in the metropolitan school districts of Portland and Seattle, 160 elementary teachers responded to 84 need statements through the utilization of a Q-Sort card deck and also identified priorities in meeting their professional in-service needs. Analyses of the data included the development of a matrix to determine the top 20 priorities elementary teachers identified as being important for their professional in-service development. Primary mean scores and the results for the tests of all primary and subsidiary hypotheses were analyzed for each of the 84 dependent variables. Based on the results of the analyses, it was recommended that the 20 priority items be considered when developing professional in-service programs for elementary teachers and that the eight major areas of career awareness be included in such a program. These areas are: (1) individual self-awareness, (2) economic and social awareness, (3) educational awareness, (4) awareness of careers, (5) decision-making abilities, (6) work understanding and job skills, (7) work aptitudes and appreciations, and (8) other areas of career awareness.
