TELEVISION EDUCATION IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL SPEECH IMPROVEMENT.
GORDON, MORTON J.
A PILOT STUDY WAS REPORTED ON THE USE OF A COMBINED TELEVISION-CLASSROOM GROUP PROGRAM IN REMEDIAL SPEECH INSTRUCTION. THE SAMPLE CONSISTED OF 535 PUPILS FROM THE ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS OF HAWAII WHO WERE DIVIDED INTO THREE GROUPS (1) TELEVISION-CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION, (2) NON-TELEVISION-CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION, AND (3) NORMAL THIRD-GRADE INSTRUCTION IN THE LANGUAGE ARTS. A WORKSHOP WAS HELD AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE PROGRAM FOR THE EXPERIMENTAL TEACHERS. THE SUBJECTS WERE PRE- AND POST-TESTED BY VARIOUS MEASURES. THE IMPROVEMENT SCORES OF THE TELEVISION CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION GROUP WERE SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN THE SCORES OF THE NORMAL CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION GROUP BUT WERE NOT SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN SCORES OF THE NONTELEVISION-CLASSROOM GROUP. MATERIALS THAT ARE PERTINENT TO THE SUBJECT'S PROBLEMS AND TEACHER AWARENESS OF PROPER SPEECH CORRECTION TECHNIQUES WERE FOUND TO BE MORE IMPORTANT FACTORS THAN TELEVISION PRESENTATIONS IN THIS SPEECH IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM.
