A NATIONAL DEMONSTRATION PROJECT UTILIZING TELEVISED MATERIALS FOR THE FORMAL EDUCATION OF CULTURALLY DISADVANTAGED PRESCHOOL CHILDREN.
MUKERJI, ROSE
DEVELOPMENT AND DEMONSTRATION OF TELEVISED EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS FOR DISADVANTAGED PRESCHOOL CHILDREN AND THEIR TEACHERS WAS ACCOMPLISHED. A SERIES OF 56 CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS AND A SERIES OF 24 PROGRAMS FOR INSERVICE TEACHERS WERE DEVELOPED AND EVALUATED. THE PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN, CALLED "ROUNDABOUT," PROVIDED EXPERIENCES AND GUIDED ACTIVITIES IN CREATIVE ARTS, SCIENCE, MATHEMATICS, SOCIAL STUDIES, AND SOCIAL RELATIONS. "TEACHER'S ROUNDABOUT," THE PROGRAMS FOR TEACHERS, INCLUDED PREVIEWS OF CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS, SUGGESTIONS FOR USING THE CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS, AND GENERAL INSERVICE TRAINING. THE FORM OF GATHERING EVALUATIVE DATA RELIED, PRIMARILY, ON AN EXTENSIVE MONITORING SYSTEM IN CLASSROOMS BEFORE, DURING, AND AFTER RECEPTION OF THE CHILDREN'S PROGRAMS. FEEDBACK PROVED EXTREMELY USEFUL IN IDENTIFYING VARIOUS STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES OF PILOT PROGRAMS AND IN PROVIDING GUIDANCE FOR FUTURE PROGRAMING. ONE PROMISING RESULT OF THE PROJECT WAS THE EXTENT TO WHICH THE TELEVISED PROGRAMS ELICITED INTERACTION AND CREATIVE RESPONSES FROM THE VIEWING CHILDREN, INCLUDING AESTHETIC, INTELLECTUAL, AND SOCIAL RESPONSES. IN ADDITION, THE USE OF CLOSEUPS AND MOVEMENT, WHETHER OF ANIMALS, PEOPLE, OR OBJECTS, SEEMED TO ELICIT INTENSIFIED INTEREST AND INVOLVEMENT ON THE PART OF THE VIEWERS. A TEACHER'S GUIDE WAS INCLUDED IN THE REPORT, CONSISTING OF (1) DESCRIPTIONS OF THE PROGRAMS AND (2) SUGGESTIONS FOR PRESCHOOL ACTIVITIES AFTER THE PROGRAMS ARE PRESENTED. (GC)
