LARGE-GROUP INSTRUCTION IN TELEVISION.
BARNES, MELVIN W.
IN AN ATTEMPT TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF INSTRUCTION, SEVERAL VARIETIES OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION HAVE BEGUN IN OKLAHOMA CITY. IN FOUR LARGE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS, HALF OF THE PUPILS' TIME HAS BEEN SPENT IN FAIRLY LARGE GROUPS AND THE OTHER HALF IN SMALLER, CONVENTIONAL-SIZE GROUPS. SMALL GROUPS WERE USED FOR TEACHING THE 3R'S. SCIENCE, ART, MUSIC, PHYSICAL EDUCATION, AND SAFETY WERE TAUGHT IN LARGE GROUPS. IN THE SECONDARY SCHOOLS, 7TH GRADE SCIENTIFIC GEOGRAPHY, 7TH GRADE LANGUAGE ARTS, AND HIGH SCHOOL CHEMISTRY WERE TAUGHT BY TELEVISION. RESULTS SHOWED THAT BETTER INTERACTION OCCURRED IN SMALL GROUPS THAN IN THE TYPICAL CONVENTIONAL CLASSROOMS. PRESENT DEMANDS ON THE SCHOOLS TO BECOME MORE EFFECTIVE AND MORE EFFICIENT DEMONSTRATE THE NEED FOR UPGRADING SUBJECT MATTER AND REORGANIZING THE CURRICULUM, ESPECIALLY IN MATHEMATICS, SCIENCE, FOREIGN LANGUAGE, AND THE LANGUAGE ARTS.
