A PILOT STUDY TO DETERMINE THE INFLUENCE UPON TEACHERS AND UPON STUDENTS OF A TELEVISION PROGRAM DESIGNED TO PROVIDE IN-SERVICE TRAINING AND CLASSROOM INSTRUCTION IN SPANISH.
HOWE, ELLIOT C.
THREE SMALL SCHOOLS IN UTAH, INCLUDING THREE TEACHERS AND THEIR SPANISH I STUDENTS, PARTICIPATED IN THIS STUDY. ONE TEACHER RECEIVED CONVENTIONAL IN-SERVICE TRAINING, THE OTHER TWO WERE GIVEN IN IN-SERVICE TRAINING IN TEACHING SPANISH AS THEY OBSERVED THE TELEVISION CLASS. ONE GROUP OF STUDENTS OBSERVED THE TELEVISION CLASS THREE TIMES PER WEEK FOR THIRTY MINUTES AS THEIR TEACHER OBSERVED THE PROGRAM. FEW, IF ANY, CONCLUSIONS CAN BE MADE ON THE BASIS OF THIS PILOT STUDY BECAUSE OF UNFORSEEN EVENTS THAT INVALIDATED THE BASIC PREMISES OF THE INVESTIGATION. THE MAJOR FACTORS IN REGARD TO THIS FAILURE WERE SEEN AS--(1) MALFUNCTION OF THE SUBSTATIONS, (2) FAILURE TO GET THE ANTENNA OPERATING AT ONE SCHOOL, AND (3) REFUSAL OF ONE TEACHER TO COOPERATE WITH THE PROJECT AFTER ABOUT TWO MONTHS.
