EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION IN THE SMALL SCHOOL.
LEDFORD, LOWELL E.
HENSLEY ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, CONSISTING OF 72 STUDENTS AND 3 TEACHERS, HAS INCORPORATED 12 EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION PROGRAMS AS A REGULAR PART OF THE CURRICULUM IN THE FIRST 6 GRADES. GRADES 1 AND 2 VIEWED PROGRAMS IN SCIENCE, SPEECH, ART, MUSIC, AND STORY TIME. GRADES 3 AND 4 VIEWED SERIES IN MUSIC, SCIENCE, ART, AND SPEECH, WHILE GRADES 5 AND 6 WERE GIVEN PRESENTATIONS IN ARKANSAS HISTORY, ART, MUSIC, SCIENCE, AND PLACES IN THE NEWS. TEN TEACHING SPECIALISTS GAVE PRESENTATIONS VIA TELEVISION. CURRICULUM ENRICHMENT THROUGH THE USE OF TELEVISION PROVED ENTIRELY PRACTICAL, WITH THE STUDENT RECEIVING A STIMULATING CHANGE OF PACE AND MUCH LEARNING BEING TRANSFORMED INTO PLEASURABLE ACTIVITIES. TEACHERS CHARACTERIZED THE LEARNING AS AVERAGE AND ALSO NOTED A MARKED DECREASE IN DISCIPLINE PROBLEMS WHICH THEY ATTRIBUTED TO INCREASED MOTIVATION ON THE PART OF THE STUDENT DURING THE TELECASTS. EVALUATION SHEETS WERE PROVIDED FOR TEACHERS' REACTIONS AND SUGGESTIONS FOR FUTURE PROGRAM IMPROVEMENT. THIS ARTICLE APPEARS IN THE "JOURNAL OF ARKANSAS EDUCATION," VOLUME 40, NUMBER 8, MAY, 1968.
