Consumer Education for Texas Industrial Arts II. Final Report.
Baker, Glenn E.; Dugger, John C., III
A series of teacher workshops was held at 10 locations throughout Texas for the purpose of disseminating a set of self-contained modules on consumer skills for industrial arts students. At the individual workshops, each teacher was given up to 20 copies of each of the bilingual modules to enhance the possibility that they would be used in classrooms. The remaining workshop activities concentrated on specific techniques for the classroom use of the modules and on developmental strategies for new modules. The main evaluation measures for the project consisted of two elements, an initial evaluation at the end of each workshop and a second evaluation after the modules had been in use. Most of the teachers surveyed felt that the materials would be useful. The few negative comments dealt with the reading level of the Spanish text. After the materials had been used at the junior and senior high school levels, a follow-up questionnaire was administered to 92 randomly selected workshop participants. Again, the responses were supportive of the materials. (Appendixes to the report include the initial and follow-up evaluation instruments; respondent comments on the evaluations; and new bilingual modules dealing with buying used cars and trucks, clear wood finishes, wood screws, and nails.)
