INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION FOR THE MIDDLE PRIMARY. A TEACHER GUIDE, SEMESTER II.
DELIKAN, ALFRED; AND OTHERS
INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION PROGRAMS FOR THE MIDDLE PRIMARY GRADES WERE DIVIDED INTO THREE AREAS--ART, MUSIC, AND PHYSICAL EDUCATION. THE MAIN OBJECTIVE OF THE ART PROGRAM WAS TO ENCOURAGE INDIVIDUAL CREATIVITY. PUPIL PARTICIPATION WAS TO TAKE PLACE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AFTER TELECAST VIEWING. ART LESSONS USED A WINTER THEME, STUFFED PAPER FORMS, SPONGE PAINTINGS AND SPRING MURALS. EACH LESSON INCLUDED A STATEMENT OF PURPOSE, MATERIALS TO BE USED, THE PROPOSED SEQUENCE, AND ADDITIONAL ACTIVITIES. THE MUSIC PROGRAM WAS DESIGNED TO INCREASE THE CHILDREN'S ENJOYMENT OF MUSIC BY POINTING OUT SPECIFIC THINGS TO LISTEN FOR, THEREBY DEVELOPING ACTIVE LISTENING RATHER THAN PASSIVE HEARING, AND TO ACQUAINT THE CHILDREN WITH THE APPREARANCE AND SOUND OF INSTRUMENTS OF THE ORCHESTRA AND BAND. TEACHERS WERE ADVISED TO BECOME PERSONALLY ACQUAINTED WITH THE MUSIC TO BE USED ON THE TELECASTS BEFORE THE ACTUAL PROGRAM, AND TO REPLAY THEM TO THE CHILDREN AFTER THE TELECASTS TO INCREASE FAMILIARITY WITH THE MUSIC WITH RESPECT TO MOOD, INSTRUMENTATION, RHYTHM, MELODY, AND FORM. PHYSICAL EDUCATION LESSONS WERE DESIGNED TO PRESENT NEW ACTIVITIES, TO SHOW THE CORRECT TECHNIQUES OF VARIOUS SKILLS AND TO GUIDE PUPILS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF DESIRABLE HABITS AND ATTITUDES. ACTIVE PARTICIPATION OF THE STUDENTS AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AFTER THE TELECAST WAS RECOMMENDED. ACTIVITIES FOR THIS GROUP INCLUDED STUNTS AND TUMBLING FUN, BALANCE BEAM SAFETY, HOPPING AND JUMPING SKILLS, AND CIRCUS ACTIVITIES. SUGGESTIONS WERE GIVEN TO CORRELATE A CIRCUS THEME WITH OTHER SUBJECTS IN PRIMARY SCHOOL SUCH AS LANGUAGE ARTS, READING, NUMBERS, SOCIAL STUDIES, SCIENCE, ART, AND MUSIC.
