Abstract: The need for good teaching has been emphasized as those both inside and outside the field of education have been critically examining our school system. Its importance has been pointed out by Ryans, who believes good teaching can lead to an enlightened and productive society while poor teaching contributes to the misunderstanding, ignorance, and intellectual stagnation of the population.1 A continuing concern of teacher educators in the field of home economics has been the traditional methods of teaching used by many high school home economics teachers. Even though the teachers study current concepts and come in contact with new methods of teaching in college courses in teacher education, it is believed that they have difficulty in applying what they have studied.
