Abstract or Summary
  • Occupational education in agriculture has increased in importance as job opportunities have shifted. Students require a broad scope of information about the numerous and increasing agriculture related occupations. Although there are several methods of teaching that could be employed, this study attempted to compare audio-visual aids with field trips. The 87 students in the introductory Vocational Agriculture classes at Lebanon Union High School were divided into a control group, audio-visual group, and a field trip group for investigation. Each group was given a pre-test and a post-test to determine their knowledge of agricultural occupations. The purpose of the study was to compare the use of audiovisual aids with field trips as teaching methods for occupational information. Within the limitations of this study, the following conclusions are based on the findings: 1. Students seemed to gain more benefit from field trips than from audio-visual aids. This was not mathematically measurable, but was observed through attitudes and increased interest. 2. Audio-visual aids are excellent for introducing occupations or illustrating occupations unavailable for field trips. 3. Subjective grading of pre-test and post-test gave indefinite research data.
