AN EXPLORATORY SURVEY OF FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHING BY TELEVISION IN THE UNITED STATES.
REID, J. RICHARD
A SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED TO REPORT THE STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES OF CLASSROOM LEARNING OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES BY MEANS OF INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION (ITV) COURSES. THREE GENERAL CATEGORIES OF DISCUSSION WERE PRESENTED--(1) THE CORROBORATION OF IMPRESSIONS, (2) THE PROFESSION'S IMAGE, AND (3) THE USE, PROBLEMS, TECHNIQUES, AND RESEARCH IN ITV. DISCUSSIONS INCLUDED DESCRIPTIONS OF TV AND OTHER AUDIOVISUAL MEDIA, VARYING ROLES OF TV IN INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS, COURSES AIMS AND METHODS, COLLEGE COURSES, SPECIAL PROBLEMS IN TV INSTRUCTION, PROGRAM PROCEDURES, EVALUATION, RESEARCH, AND TV'S PROMISE. ITV WAS NOT THE ANSWER TO THE SHORTAGE OF LANGUAGE TEACHERS, BUT COULD BE A MAJOR PART OF THE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM. REPORTS IN THIS SERIES ARE ED 003 940 THROUGH ED 003 960. (RS)
