THE EFFECTS OF MENTAL RETARDATION ON FILM LEARNING.
DRISCOLL, JOHN P.
THE EFFECTS OF MENTAL RETARDATION UPON FILM-LEARNING ABILITY WAS INVESTIGATED. FILMS WHICH COVERED AREAS OF VOCATIONAL ORIENTATION, CONSUMER EDUCATION OR ECONOMICS, AND CIVICS, WERE PRODUCED. THE STUDY SAMPLE WAS MADE UP OF 402 SUBJECTS FROM 21 JUNIOR AND SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS. THE AVERAGE AGE WAS 14 YEARS AND THE MEAN IQ, 68. PRE- AND POST-TESTS INCLUDED ORAL, INDIVIDUAL, AND VISUAL PROCEDURES. THE RESPONSES WERE RECORDED AND ANALYZED. THE RESULTS INDICATED THAT SPECIAL FILMS CAN BE EFFECTIVE AS A TEACHING METHOD FOR EDUCABLE MENTALLY RETARDED PUPILS. IT WAS SUGGESTED THAT FURTHER DEVELOPMENT INCLUDE "RECAPS" AND RECALLS. (RS)
