Perceptions of the Language Arts Education in the Ohio Two-Year Technical College Programs.
Fullen, James Delbert
The problem of this study was to identify the language arts program in Ohio two-year colleges with technical programs. Some of the research procedures involved: (1) a survey of the literature to gain background and direction; (2) development of items for the four questionnaires which would reveal the identity of the technical language arts program and the perceptions of the educational administrators, language arts instructors, technical students, and employers of technical graduates; (3) administering the two larger questionnaires in a pilot study; and (4) refining the items. Some of the major conclusions were: the Ohio colleges and universities ill equipped administrators and instructors for work in the two-year technical colleges; there was no Ohio technical language arts program; there was a great awareness of the role and the purpose of the language arts programs on the part of most technical education administrators; and the "teach not research" slogan of the two-year technical colleges needed abandoning. The study recommended establishing a state organization and publishing a professional journal for language arts instructors. (Author/WR)
