A Study of the Effectiveness of Workshops for Vocational Teachers of Disadvantaged High School Students in Oklahoma.
Apple, E.T.
A series of nine 3-day workshops for vocational education teachers of disadvantaged students in 44 Oklahoma counties were held in June 1970 to determine whether teachers': (1) attitudes toward disadvantaged students were changed favorably, (2) use of behavioral objectives was increased, (3) use of innovative motivational methods was increased, and (4) opportunities for grants to purchase equipment and supplies were utilized. To measure the effectiveness of the workshops, a questionnaire was developed and administered one year after the workshops to a random sample of 100 teachers who had attended the workshops and a random control sample of 100 teachers who had not attended the workshops. Data analysis revealed that there were no significant differences between the groups on their attitudes toward disadvantaged students nor on the use of behavioral objectives in classroom activities. There was an observed difference between the groups in regard to the number of innovative teaching technqiues they used in the classroom to motivate disadvantaged students to learn. There was a 40 percent utilization of grants for equipment or supplies to help disadvantaged students to learn. (Author/SB)
