The problem shall be to study methods used to teach mechanical drawing to eighth grade students. More specifically, the study sought answers to the following questions: 1. What methods do teachers employ in teaching mechanical drawing to eighth grade students? 2. How do the methods utilized by teachers compare with those suggested by writers of publications and books in the field?

As a teacher of eighth grade mechanical drawing, the researcher became interested in this kind of a study as a result of the constant change in teaching methods. Too, the advent of new technical and mechanical devices in our technological society further increased the desire to undertake such an investigation.

It is hoped that this study will provide insights and understandings, so that teachers will constantly evaluate the learning activities with a desire to constantly improve. Further, it is hoped that a larger and more extended study will follow to substantiate the results of this study.

This study was limited to the teachers of eighth grade mechanical drawing in the Houston Independent School District, Houston, Texas during the 1969-1970 school year.
