Abstract or Summary
  • Purposes of the Study: The study was made in order that the following objectives might be reached: 1. To ascertain the present physical facilities for visual education in the Corvallis schools. 2. To obtain data showing the extent to which visual aids are being used by Corvallis teachers. 3. To determine what teachers and administrators believe the needs to be. 4. To suggest practical means for improvement. Method of Obtaining Data: After general reading on the subject, the study was outlined and methods of obtaining data were devised. It was thought best to have close personal contact with the schools and the staff so far as possible. Accordingly an interview was obtained with each administrator. This was followed by a group interview of the staff of each school. Other persons such as the curator of the Horner Museum, the Supervisor of Visual Education in Portland, the Corvallis school clerk, and the chairman of the Corvallis visual education committee were also interviewed. Results of the interviews were made more objective by the use of a check-chart devised for supplemental use in the group interviews. Significant data obtained through both personal and group interviews are charted and graphed in the thesis (Chapter II). Information regarding practices in other cities was secured through reading and interview. A comprehensive study of nation-wide coverage, compiled by the Supervisor of Visual Education in Portland, is included in chart form in the appendix. Needs of a Future Program: Desirable features of a future program are discussed in Chapter III. These features are suggested by successful practices in other cities and by the responses of Corvallis teachers and others. They cover administration and organization, physical facilities, preparation and storage of materials, and promotion of the program. Recommendations: An attempt is made in Chapter IV to suggest ways of improving the visual education program in Corvallis in a manner that will have the support of the school staff and the community it serves. The principal points of the suggested plan are summarized as follows: 1. That an expanded visual education committee promote and administer an improvement program for visual education in the Corvallis Public Schools until such time as the program may require a part-time director. 2. That the committee first be concerned with completing an inventory of available materials, developing teacher participation, and determining specific needs. 3. That ample provision be made for producing usable visual aids from material collected by teachers. 4. That a federally subsidized Works Progress Administration or National Youth Administration program for the production of visual aids be planned and submitted. 5. That the district purchase visual materials as savings in rental costs and more intensive usage justifies. 6. That the present contract arrangements be only slightly changed but that scheduling of visual aids be tried on a quarterly basis. 7. That opportunities for cooperating with other school organizations in the purchase of visual aids be investigated by the administration. 8. That a decentralized, but adequately cataloged, plan of storage of equipment and materials be used at present. 9. That additional equipment be purchased on a long term plan, provided teacher interest and demand justifies it. 10. That the school patrons be shown the advantages of visual education and that they be shown the activities of the schools by visual methods.
