A FILM ON THE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ACT OF 1963.
FURSE, RUSSELL L.
SIX FILM COMMUNICATION MODULES AND A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR THEIR DISSEMINATION WERE PRODUCED BY THE BROOKS FOUNDATION TO INFORM THE PUBLIC AND VARIOUS TARGET GROUPS OF THE SCOPE AND PURPOSES OF THE VOCATIONAL EDUCATION ACT OF 1963. A HALF-HOUR MOTION PICTURE DOCUMENTARY-DRAMATIZATION ENTITLED "THE EMPTY LOT" WAS SUPPLEMENTED BY THREE SHORT MOTION PICTURE ANNOUNCEMENTS AND BY TWO 15-MINUTE COLOR-SOUND FILMSTRIPS, FOR PROFESSIONAL AND LAY AUDIENCES RESPECTIVELY. A METHOD OF ITERATIVE REVISIONS THROUGH PROGRESSIVE STAGES WAS USED IN DEVELOPING THE AUDIENCE TARGETS, THE FORM OF EACH MODULE, AND THE CONTENT OF EACH MODULE. THE ITERATIVE CYCLES CONSISTED OF SEQUENTIAL INTERACTIONS BETWEEN THE BROOKS FOUNDATION STAFF AND A REFERENCE GROUP, CHIEFLY STAFF MEMBERS OF THE U.S. OFFICE OF EDUCATION. THE MATERIALS EMPLOYED INCLUDED BACKGROUND INFORMATION LISTS, TREATMENT OUTLINES, SCRIPTS, DRAWINGS, SLIDES, SOUND-PICTURE FILM SEGMENTS, FILMSTRIPS, AND MOTION PICTURES. CONSIDERATIONS OF TIME AND BUDGET PREVENTED EXTENSION OF THE ITERATIVE REVIEW PROCEDURE TO ACTUAL NAIVE LEARNERS (THE ULTIMATE TARGET AUDIENCE). BUT IT WAS FOUND THAT MUCH USEFUL INFORMATION COULD BE DEVELOPED BY APPLYING THE METHOD WITH AN EXPERT REFERENCE GROUP. A QUESTION WAS RAISED AS TO HOW MUCH CONSIDERATIONS OF AUTHORITY AND RESPONSIBILITY WOULD TEND TO DISTORT EXPERT JUDGMENT IN THE REFERENCE GROUP. (TC)
