Format MicroformMicroform, BookBook
Rossmann, Marilyn Martin
Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1980 
102 p. 

This report details a two-part study to describe the Minnesota secondary and adult consumer and homemaking program and to identify "special" consumer and homemaking programs and describe them through case studies. Questions in the study focus on responsiveness to the 1976 Vocational Education Amendments. The methodological approaches used are applicable to other programs. Part 1 describes a quantitative survey which identified student enrollments, teacher preparation and length of service, content areas being taught, and adaptation of curriculum to eliminate sex role stereotyping. Part 2 focuses on qualitative case studies of ten selected home economics programs in Minnesota at both secondary and adult levels. The following categories of information are integrated into each five-to-seven-page case study: history of the program, student-teacher interactions, concerns of teachers, and quotes from persons involved with the program. Emphasis of the evaluation is given to outreach to new population (males, parents, disadvantaged adults), elimination of sex bias, and inclusion of consumer, nutrition, and parent education in the curriculum. Appendixes, amounting to approximately one-fifth of the report, include the questionnaires and guides for case study interviews and observations. (YLB)
