THE DIFFERENTIAL EFFECTS UPON THE LEARNING OF THE NATURAL SCIENCES BY FIFTH GRADERS OF TWO MODES OF TEACHING OVER TELEVISION AND IN THE CLASSROOM.
DECKER, MARTIN GEORGE
INVESTIGATED WERE DIFFERENCES IN AMOUNT AND QUALITY OF LEARNING WHEN TWO DIFFERENT APPROACHES TO TEACHING PROBLEM-SOLVING AND INFORMATION-GIVING WERE USED IN TELEVISION-AIDED INSTRUCTION IN THE NATURAL SCIENCES. INVOLVED WERE 36 RANDOMLY SELECTED FIFTH-GRADE CLASSES, AND 36 TEACHERS. TWO DIFFERENT SERIES OF TELEVISION PROGRAMS, AND TWO DIFFERENT SERIES OF CLASSROOM MATERIALS, ONE USING PROBLEM-SOLVING TECHNIQUES, THE OTHER FACTUAL PRESENTATIONS, WERE DESIGNED AND USED IN VARIOUS COMBINATIONS. STUDENTS WERE TESTED FOR INTELLIGENCE, AND BOTH PRETESTED AND POST-TESTED FOR SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE, PROBLEM-SOLVING ABILITY, AND REASONING ABILITY. AN ATTITUDE INVENTORY WAS USED TO ASSESS TEACHER SELECTION. NO STATISTICALLY SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCES IN AMOUNT AND QUALITY OF LEARNING AMONG THE GROUPS WERE REPORTED.
