An Evaluation of Doris Katz' Home Economics 134.
Smith, Helen G.; Gillmore, Gerald M.
Home Economics 134 was designed to teach the construction and design of clothing on a basic level for students interested in home economics teaching, professional clothes designing, or just self-enrichment. Budget restrictions over a three year period necessitated the reduction of faculty members available to teach the course from three instructors to one. This teacher faced the problem of accommodating a large number of students with a wide range of abilities who wanted to take the class. Finding scheduled lectures to be inadequate as they required extensive repetition of information, she developed a method of instruction based on self-pacing and heavy use of video tape. Meanwhile, a comprehensive indepth evaluation, which stressed student reactions to her was conducted in order to determine course success. The University of Washington Student Ratings Form is appended. (Author/BJG)
