A STUDY OF CLOSED-CIRCUIT TELEVISION AS A TEACHING TECHNIQUE FOR SPEECH IMPROVEMENT IN THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM.
DEMARCO, NORMAN; IVEY, SARA M.
THE EFFECTIVENESS OF CLOSED-CIRCUIT TELEVISION FOR SPEECH IMPROVEMENT AT THE THIRD-GRADE LEVEL WAS INVESTIGATED. OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY WERE TO TEST (1) THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TELEVISED INSTRUCTION ON INSERVICE TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR ELEMENTARY CLASSROOM TEACHERS AND (2) THE AMOUNT OF SPEECH IMPROVEMENT WITH THIRD-GRADE CHILDREN VIEWING 52 TELEVISION PROGRAMS DURING 1 SCHOOL YEAR. ELEVEN CLASSES OF THIRD-GRADE STUDENTS SERVED AS SUBJECTS IN CONTROL AND EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS. DATA WERE ANALYZED ON 220 CHILDREN AND 10 TEACHERS. ALL GROUPS WERE GIVEN THE SAME BATTERY OF 10 TESTS PRIOR TO AND AFTER THE PROGRAMS. THE CONTROL GROUPS DID NOT RECEIVE THE PROGRAMS. THE EXPERIMENTAL GROUP DID NOT DEMONSTRATE IMPROVEMENT SIGNIFICANTLY SUPERIOR TO THAT OF THE CONTROL GROUP. IT WAS POINTED OUT THAT EFFECTIVE TELEVISION DEMANDS INFINITELY DETAILED PREPLANNING, PROFESSIONAL AND ENTHUSIASTIC OPERATORS, ADEQUATE FACILITIES, AND INTENSE INTEREST OF ALL PARTICIPANTS. SUGGESTIONS WERE MADE FOR FURTHER STUDY BEFORE FIRM CONCLUSIONS ARE MADE CONCERNING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TELEVISION IN THE AREA OF SPEECH INSTRUCTION. (JC)
