AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF TELEVISION AS A MEDIUM OF FRENCH INSTRUCTION.
Toronto Board of Education (Ontario).
A FIVE-MONTH EXPERIMENT IN TORONTO COMPARED TELEVISION AS A MEDIUM OF INSTRUCTION IN FRENCH FOR GRADES 7 AND 8 WITH THE SAME MATERIAL PRESENTED BY BOOK AND TAPE RECORDINGS. ANALYSES WERE MADE OF THE MAKE-UP OF EACH GROUP, STUDENT INTERESTS AND FUTURE PLANS, AND THE LENGTH AND FREQUENCY OF INSTRUCTIONAL PERIODS. WHILE THE STUDENTS TAUGHT WITH BOOK AND TAPE RECORDINGS SURPASSED THE OTHERS ON BOTH THE ORAL PROFICIENCY AND THE COMPREHENSION TESTS, ESPECIALLY IF THEY RECEIVED FEWER BUT LONGER SESSIONS, MOTIVATION PROVED SUPERIOR TO ALL INTERRELATED FACTORS. THE REPORT OF THE EXPERIMENT DESCRIBES THE PURPOSES, METHODS, AND RESULTS OF THE STUDY, AND CONTAINS TABLES TO SUPPORT THE FINDINGS, A COPY OF A QUESTIONNAIRE TO STUDENTS, AND INSTRUCTIONS AND SCORING SHEETS FOR THE ORAL EXAMINATION AND THE TWO COMPREHENSION TESTS.
