Sireno, Peter J.; And Others
The pilot project was intended to provide the industrial arts metals teachers with experiences and opportunities needed to help them plan, develop, and introduce occupationally-oriented information, activities, and experiences into industrial arts classes. Fourteen industrial arts metals teachers in the State of Missouri were selected from grades 8, 9, and 10 in those school districts having vocational education programs in metals, machine shop, and/or vocational programs related to the cluster of occupations in the metals industry. The teachers particpated in an inservice practicum whose content was based on survey findings sent to industrial arts metals teachers, vocational education metals teachers, selected firms within the metals industry, and representatives of labor. Teachers were pretested before the practicum, offered the practicum, then posttested. Evidence of the achievement of the projects purpose was provided by gains reported from pretest and posttest evaluations. Also, evaluative comments by participants supported the pretest and posttest evaluations. This report explains the total project in four sections: (1) Introduction, (2) Methodology, (3) Presentation and Analysis of Practicum Activities, and (4) Conclusions and Recommendations. Ten Appendices and 12 tables are included. (HD)
