Renewal of Currently Employed Teachers as Teachers of Applied Biological and Agricultural Occupations. Final Report.
Thomas, Hollie B.; And Others
A workshop of interested science teachers from the metropolitan area of Illinois sought to increase their awareness of the career opportunities for their students in the biological and agricultural occupations that exist locally. The main purpose of the project was to establish programs in the metropolitan areas designed to match the interests of students with the needs of business/industry in these occupational fields. Employed methodological procedures included: (1) designing and conducting appropriate workshops, (2) evaluating their effectiveness, and (3) recruiting participants. Some 62 teachers from secondary schools in Chicago were involved in the eleven 3-hour sessions. Participant proposals and questionnaire responses provided the evaluation data from which findings and conclusions were generated. Most of the participants indicated they would be initiating new programs or including some aspect of applied biological occupations in their existing programs and expressed a need to acquire appropriate occupational technical knowledge and skills.
