THE UTILIZATION OF CLASSROOM TELEVISION.
LENIHAN, KENNETH J.; MENZEL, HERBERT
THIS REPORT CONSOLIDATES FINDINGS OF 3 EARLIER REPORTS OF CLASSROOM TV IN NEW YORK. A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS MAILED TO ALL PUBLIC AND PRIVATE ELEMENTARY AND HIGH SCHOOLS IN 32 COUNTIES OF THE VIEWING AREA TO ASSESS CLASSROOM AUDIENCE SIZE AND CHARACTERISTICS OF SCHOOLS USING THE TV PROGRAMS. SCHOOLS RETURNING QUESTIONNAIRES WERE SAMPLED AT RANDOM AND KEY PERSONNEL WERE INTERVIEWED TO FURTHER EVALUATE TV USE. (ANALYSIS OF QUESTIONNAIRE NON-RESPONDENTS REVEALED NO DIFFERENCES IN TV VIEWING FROM RESPONDENTS' VIEWING.) PART I DISCUSSES QUESTIONNAIRE DATA, AND CONCLUDES--TV VIEWING IS STRONGLY RELATED TO A RATIO OF TEACHERS TO AVAILABLE SETS, AND SCHOOLS WHOSE PUPILS' PARENTS RATE HIGH ON AN INCOME-OCCUPATION INDEX HAVE MORE TV SETS AND ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE SMALLER SCHOOLS. OTHER CHAPTERS DISCUSS USE OF AUDIO-VISUAL AIDS AND THE SCHOOL PRINCIPAL, AND TV SCHEDULING DIFFICULTIES IN PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS. PART II DISCUSSES INTERVIEW DATA FROM 400 TEACHERS, 206 PRINCIPALS AND 48 TV COORDINATORS. VIEWING HABITS, ATTITUDES, AND DESIRED CHANGES ARE REPORTED. BOTH THE MAIL QUESTIONNAIRE AND INTERVIEW SCHEDULE ARE REPRODUCED. (LH)
