Integrative Manpower-Economic Education: An Experiment in Curricular Change.
Luker, William A.; And Others
This study reports on a four-phase program to determine if secondary teachers, through a range of disciplines, can be made agents of manpower-economic information dissemination and attitudinal change. Four major hypotheses were tested in the program with these results: (1) pupils of teachers participating in the World of Work Economic Education (WOWEE) seminars or a summer institute showed significantly greater increases in their understanding of the world of work than pupils of non-participating teachers; (2) pupils of WOWEE teachers developed significantly greater increases in positive attitudes toward non-professional work modes than those of non-participating teachers; (3) pupils did not experience significantly greater increases in realistic attitudes toward non-professional work modes; and (4) no significant differences surfaced between cognitive and conative performances of pupils taught by summer institute participants and those taught by in-service participants. Two-thirds of the document consist of five appendixes which offer a program summary, two lists of participants, a list of study variables, and study instruments (social position index, job list, and tests).
