Laying the Groundwork for an Interdisciplinary Effort Aimed at Prevention of Pregnancy among Middle School Youth. Phase II: A Survey of Florida Vocational Home Economics Teachers. Final Report, July 1, 1979-June 30, 1980.
Morse, Betty R.; Dixon, Betty L.
Attitudes of Florida vocational home economics teachers were surveyed concerning a pregnancy-prevention education program for early adolescents during project phase 2. The Needs Assessment Inventory for Teenage Pregnancy Prevention developed in phase 1 was administered to 1274 teachers who approved the range of objectives cited in the Inventory and reported themselves at least moderately prepared to teach them. Although there were no differences between family living and child development teachers and all other home economics teachers in approval of objectives, the first group reported themselves significantly more prepared to teach the eighty-four items. There were no differences in teacher approach--characteristically didactic--between the two groups. A teacher profile of demographic variables was compiled. Representing the most complete information available, the profiles included such personal information as marital status, number of children, religion, type of community, and preferred teaching area. (Over thirty tables are provided. Appendixes include the instrument, listing of materials in the resource center which was established, and outline and schedule of teacher seminars which were conducted.) (YLB)
