Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore the understanding of these social learning and interaction concepts in AT curriculum (Saiki & Adomaitis, 2014) among students in different regions of the United States. The main research questions were: (1) Will students from two regions (rural and urban) have different definitions of (a) fast fashion and (b) apparel quality? (2)If there are rural and urban differences, how are the definitions different? The topic is significant because understanding how the demographics of students in AT programs can assist instructors in addressing student learning needs. It can also guide instructors in working with varied groups of students from different locations, such as in Land Grant Universities, State Colleges and online courses taught at different locations.
