Andersen, Charlotte; Swanson, Steven
This 5 to 9 week unit on television is designed to help secondary students develop discrimination in choice of programs, put televiewing in its proper perspective among their daily activities, and communicate their reactions to stations and producers. Discussion questions, teacher background information, lists of television terms and hand signals, forms for student evaluations of TV programs, and numerous suggested activities, with emphasis on listening, speaking, writing, and reading, are offered. Subjects covered are personality, comedy, family, western, and cops and robbers shows; news, weather, and sports; serials; movies (science fiction, horror, and prime-time movies); game and cartoon programs; and commercials (the form of the commercial script and commonly used propaganda techniques). A bibliography, with periodicals, films, and records for both teachers and students, is also included. (DD)
