INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION FOR THE UPPER PRIMARY. A TEACHER GUIDE, SEMESTER II.
DELIKAN, ALFRED; AND OTHERS
TELECAST PROGRAMS FOR THE UPPER PRIMARY GRADES WERE IN ART, MUSIC, PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SCIENCE. A PREVIEW OF THE CONTENT OF EACH UNIT WAS GIVEN, TOGETHER WITH DETAILED INFORMATION FOR FOLLOWUP ACTIVITY. IN THE ART SERIES, IT WAS RECOMMENDED THAT PUPIL PARTICIPATION TAKE PLACE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AFTER THE TELECAST. INDIVIDUAL CREATIVITY WAS EMPHASIZED. LESSONS INCLUDED A WINTER THEME, STUFFED PAPER FORMS, SPONGE PAINTING, AND A SPRING MURAL. MUSIC LESSONS WERE DESIGNED TO ACQUAINT THE PUPILS WITH THE APPEARANCE AND SOUND OF INSTRUMENTS SUCH AS THE VIOLIN, CELLO, TRUMPET, FLUTE AND DRUMS, WITH EXPHASIS ON ACTIVE LISTENING RATHER THAN PASSIVE HEARING. TEACHERS WERE ADVISED TO BECOME ACQUAINTED WITH SELECTIONS TO BE USED BEFORE THE PRESENTATION, AND TO REPLAY THEM TO PUPILS AFTER THE TELECAST TO INCREASE FAMILIARITY WITH MUSIC WITH RESPECT TO MOOD, INSTRUMENTATION, RHYTHM, MELODY AND FORM. PUPILS SHOULD BE GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO LISTEN QUIETLY TO AN UNINTERRUPTED PERFORMANCE OF MUSIC. PHYSICAL EDUCATION TELECASTS WERE DESIGNED TO PRESENT NEW ACTIVITIES, SHOW CORRECT TECHNIQUES OF VARIOUS SKILLS AND GUIDE PUPILS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF DESIRABLE HABITS AND ATTITUDES. STUNTS AND TUMBLING, ROPE JUMPING, OUTDOOR GAMES AND CIRCUS TIME WERE INCLUDED. CIRCUS THEME ACTIVITIES WERE CORRELATED WITH OTHER SUBJECTS IN THE PRIMARY GRADE SUCH AS LANGUAGE ARTS, READING, NUMBERS, SOCIAL STUDIES, SCIENCE, ART AND MUSIC. SCIENCE TELECASTS WERE DESIGNED TO BRING SCIENCE EXPERIENCES INTO THE CLASSROOM WHICH MIGHT NOT ORDINARILY BE POSSIBLE. UNITS IN THIS SERIES WERE PLANTS, ANIMALS, EARTH, UNIVERSE, AND ENERGY. FOR SOME CLASSES, THE TELECASTS PROVIDED ENRICHMENT, FOR OTHERS, AN INTRODUCTION TO THE PARTICULAR AREA.
