FINN, JAMES D.; WEDBERG, DESMOND P.
THE EFFECTIVENESS OF SIMULATED AND OF ACTUAL OBSERVATIONS OF PUBLIC SCHOOL CLASSROOMS WERE COMPARED FOR THE INTRODUCTORY COURSE IN A SEQUENCE OF FIVE COLLEGE COURSES REQUIRED IN TEACHER TRAINING. A TOTAL OF 151 STUDENTS IN FOUR SECTIONS OF THE INTRODUCTORY COURSE WERE RANDOMLY ASSIGNED TO THREE GROUPS WHICH--(1) OBSERVED A MINIMUM OF 30 HOURS IN ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY PUBLIC SCHOOL CLASSROOMS, (2) OBSERVED A MINIMUM OF 10 HOURS IN ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY PUBLIC SCHOOL CLASSROOMS FOLLOWING 10 HOURS OF ON-CAMPUS PROGRAMED OBSERVATION EXPERIENCES CONSISTING ENTIRELY OF SOUND MOTION PICTURES, SOUND FILMSTRIPS, SLIDE AND TAPE PRESENTATIONS, AND TAPE RECORDINGS, OR (3) OBSERVED 10 HOURS OF ON-CAMPUS PROGRAMED OBSERVATION EXPERIENCES ONLY. TEN 53-MINUTE PERIODS OF PHOTO-SOUND OBSERVATION EXPERIENCES WERE PREPARED UTILIZING 8MM SOUND MOTION PICTURES AND 35MM SLIDE-TAPE PROGRAMS. THE 10-HOUR ON-CAMPUS PLUS 10-HOUR OFF-CAMPUS TECHNIQUE PROVED SUPERIOR TO THE OTHER TECHNIQUES IN THE DEGREE TO WHICH STATED OBSERVATION UNIT OBJECTIVES WERE MET. (JM)
