REPORT AND EVALUATION ON "WHEN IS SEPTEMBER."
DUROST, WALTER N.
TWENTY 30-MINUTE TELEVISION PROGRAMS WERE PRODUCED ON FILM IN THE PERIOD FROM MAY 11 TO AUGUST 3, 1959, FOR THE PURPOSES OF (1) ACQUAINTING THE YOUNG CHILD PRIOR TO ENTERING THE FIRST GRADE AS TO THE NATURE OF THE NEW ENVIRONMENT HE WILL ENCOUNTER, (2) ENCOURAGING THE DEVELOPMENT OF PROFICIENCY IN CERTAIN BASIC TASKS AND SKILLS FOR GROUP LIVING IN THE FIRST GRADE, AND (3) ORIENTING PARENTS ON THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES, AND THE ROLES OF THE TEACHER, PRINCIPAL, AND ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF. AN EVALUATION OF THE PROJECT WAS MADE IN FOUR MAJOR CATEGORIES--(1) OPINION POLLS OF PARENTS WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE SERIES, (2) OPINIONS OF FIRST-GRADE TEACHERS, (3) A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF CHILDREN WHO PARTICIPATED AND A MATCHED GROUP OF CHILDREN WHO DID NOT PARTICIPATE, INVOLVING EVALUATIVE TESTS AND DEVICES, AND (4) AN EVALUATION OF THE PROJECT BY THE SCHOOL PRINCIPALS. IN SPITE OF A LARGE NUMBER OF OBSTACLES ENCOUNTERED, IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT SUCH TELEVISION EXPERIENCE CAN CONTRIBUTE NOTABLY TO THE ADJUSTMENT OF CHILDREN IN SCHOOL IF PROPERLY PLANNED, AND IF THOSE FOR WHOM IT IS DESIGNED ARE MOTIVATED. A NUMBER OF RECOMMENDATIONS WERE MADE FOR FUTURE ACTION. (JC)
