CLEAVES, PAUL C.; AND OTHERS
THE INSTRUCTIONAL MATERIALS CENTER IS LOCATED IN THE LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL AND SUPPLIES ALL SCHOOLS IN THE AREA. AUDIOVISUAL EQUIPMENT ORDERS, AFTER SELECTIONS ARE MADE BY THE CLASSROOM TEACHER, ARE PROCESSED BY THE CENTER, CONFIRMED AND DELIVERED BY TRUCK THREE TIMES EACH WEEK. EACH SCHOOL HAS A BUILDING COORDINATOR WHO CHECKS THE ORDERS INTO THE BUILDING, CHANNELS THEM TO THE REQUESTING TEACHER, AND RETURNS THEM FOR PICK-UP ACCORDING TO SCHEDULE. COORDINATORS PARTICIPATE IN CITYWIDE WORKSHOPS DEVOTED TO LEARNING ABOUT AND CREATING PROJECTED MATERIALS. THESE TEACHERS ALSO TRAIN OTHERS IN THE USE OF MATERIALS AND EQUIPMENT, INFORM THEIR COLLEAGUES OF NEW MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUES, AND ORGANIZE AND TRAIN STUDENT ASSISTANTS. THE HIGH SCHOOL OPERATES ITS OWN CLOSED CIRCUIT TELEVISION CHANNEL, AND THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS ENJOY THE SERVICE OF OPEN CIRCUIT EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION. A CORRELATED TEACHER'S PROGRAM FOR EACH LEVEL INSURES MAXIMUM EFFECTIVENESS IN THE CLASSROOM AND SERVES TO DEMONSTRATE OTHER POTENTIALS FOR INSERVICE TRAINING PROGRAMS. EQUIPMENT PERMANENTLY LOCATED IN ALL SCHOOLS INCLUDES SOUND-ON-FILM PROJECTORS, OPAQUE PROJECTORS, TAPE RECORDERS, RECORD PLAYERS, PROJECTION SCREENS, AND ROOMS WITH LIGHT CONTROL. THE OVERHEAD PROJECTOR HAS BEEN USED TO INTRODUCE MODERN ARITHMETIC TO PARENTS, WHILE THE TAPE RECORDER HAS PROVED USEFUL IN TEACHING READING AND MUSIC. IN A UNIT ON COMMUNICATION THE OPAQUE PROJECTOR WAS USED FOR ENLARGING NEWS STORIES, THE TAPE RECORDER FOR RECORDING AND ANALYZING STUDENT SPEECHES, THE FILMSTRIP PROJECTOR FOR SHOWING A FILM ON A NEWSPAPER, AND THE TELETRAINER FOR TEACHING GOOD SPEAKING AND LISTENING TECHNIQUES. STUDENT READING SPEED AND COMPREHENSION HAS SHOWN IMPROVEMENT THROUGH THE USE OF ACCELERATING DEVICES, AND SENTENCE DIAGRAMING HAS BEEN INTRODUCED BY USING THE OVERHEAD PROJECTOR. THIS ARTICLE WAS A REPRINT FROM THE "GRADE TEACHER" MAGAZINE, JUNE 1964.
