A Study of the Attitudes and Teaching Behaviors of Occupational Orientation Teachers in Mississippi.
Brooks, William Kent
The major purposes of the study were to describe the attitudes held by occupational orientation teachers toward career education/occupational orientation and to determine what personal, experience, training, and teaching behavior variables contributed to high positive attitudes. Also included was an investigation of differences in the frequency of teaching behaviors when these behaviors were associated with classes of personal, experience, and training variables. Nine conclusions are presented relative to occupational orientation teachers. Chapter one presents background information, a statement of the problem, purpose of the study, questions for investigation, definition of terms, and limitations and organization of the study. Chapter two discusses foundations of attitude measurement and foundations of career education, reviews literature related to personal experience and training variables, and a summary of the literature reviewed. Chapter three describes methods and procedures, population, instrumentation, data collection, statistical models, and scoring of attitude statements. Chapter four details results, purpose, and analysis of data. Chapter five provides a summary and discussion, conclusions, and recommendations, followed by the survey questionnaire and a bibliography. Fifteen tables present data on attitude scores, relationships, and distributions tabulated by various categories, and test-retest means and correlation coefficients. (Author/NH)
