A FURTHER SEARCH FOR ELEMENTS OF TOMORROW'S CLASSROOM. DENVER-STANFORD PROJECT ON THE CONTEXT OF INSTRUCTIONAL TELEVISION, REPORT NUMBER 12.
HAYMAN, JOHN L., JR.; JOHNSON, JAMES T., JR.
THIS FINAL PHASE OF THE PROJECT (FOR THE ORIGINAL STUDY SEE FL 000 147) WAS AN ATTEMPT TO REACH BEYOND THE FORMAL EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN TO ANSWER A NUMBER OF PEDAGOGICAL QUESTIONS NOT EASILY EXPLORED WITHIN ITS LIMITATIONS. SEVEN TEACHERS WERE GIVEN FREE REIN TO SUPPLEMENT THE INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS ALREADY IN USE FOR SIXTH-GRADE SPANISH PUPILS. THESE "TOMORROW'S CLASSROOM" (TC) TEACHERS PROVED MOST IMAGINATIVE AND PRODUCTIVE, AND DEMONSTRATED THE VALUE OF THE CLASSROOM TEACHER MORE DRAMATICALLY THAN DID ANY OTHER PHASE OF THE PROJECT. THE VARIETY OF INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUES AND MATERIALS DEVISED BY EACH, AND THEIR TEACHING BACKGROUNDS, ARE PRESENTED IN CAREFUL DETAIL IN THE MAIN SECTION OF THIS REPORT. TEST RESULTS (A STATISTICAL ANALYSIS IS GIVEN) SHOW THE VALUE OF THIS TYPE OF INSTRUCTION--THE TC PUPILS OUTPERFORMED THE REGULAR GROUPS IN READING AND WRITING BY A FACTOR OF 25 PERCENT. THE PROJECT YIELDED DETAILED RECOMMENDATIONS ABOUT (1) THE NEED FOR VARIETY IN AUDIO-LINGUAL AND READING-WRITING INSTRUCTION, FOR AN ELIMINATION OF AN ARTIFICIAL SEPARATION OF THE TWO, AND (2) THE VALUE OF TAPE RECORDERS, PROGRAMED INSTRUCTION, INTER-PUPIL COMMUNICATION, AND CULTURAL STUDY. FOR COMPANION DOCUMENTS SEE ALSO FL 000 820 AND FL 000 821. (RW)
