Influence of Field Trip on the Development of Students Interest Towards Studying Fine And Applied Arts
The study investigated the influence of field trip on the development of students’ interest towards studying fine and applied arts. Two research questions and one hypothesis were formulated to guide the study. All the J.S.2 students (totalling 310) from the three government owned secondary schools that offer fine and applied arts in Orumba South Local Government area in Anambra state were used. Mean and standard deviation were used to analyse the two research questions while Z-test was used to analyse the only hypothesis used for the study. Result of the study showed that; field trip increased students’ interest towards studying fine and applied art theory and practicals. Male interest towards studying fine and applied art after embarking on field trip is slightly higher than their female counterpart but the difference is not significant at 0.05 alpha level under 56 degree of freedom. Recommendations were given.
