CLOSED-CIRCUIT TELEVISION IN SECOND SEMESTER COLLEGE GERMAN.
GOTTSCHALK, GUNTHER H.
IN 1964, THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, SANTA BARBARA, CONDUCTED AN EXPERIMENT REPLACING 50 PERCENT OF STUDENT-TEACHER CONTACT WITH PRE-RECORDED TELEVISION LECTURES FOR TWO OF SIX SECTIONS OF GERMAN. ELEMENTS NORMALLY PRESENTED BY LECTURES WERE ISOLATED FROM CURRENT COURSE MATERIALS FOR TELEVISION PRESENTATION. IT WAS BELIEVED THAT THE QUALITY OF INSTRUCTION INCREASED CONSIDERABLY, AND THE SOMEWHAT NEGATIVE STUDENT REACTION OBTAINED BY A QUESTIONNAIRE GIVEN BEFORE THE COURSE SHIFTED TO A FAVORABLE ONE AS THE STUDENTS REALIZED THEY WERE LEARNING MORE THAN IN A REGULAR COURSE. THE TELEVISION GROUPS COVERED MORE MATERIAL, AND OUTPERFORMED THE REGULAR GROUPS IN LISTENING AND READING COMPREHENSION AND IN TRANSLATION FROM ENGLISH TO GERMAN. THIS DOCUMENT IS A REPRINT FROM "THE MODERN LANGUAGE JOURNAL," VOLUME 49, NUMBER 2, FEBRUARY 1965, PAGES 86-91. (RW)
