A Study of the Effectiveness of Television Teaching of Conservation and Forest Fire Prevention in Kindergarten and First Grade of Selected Schools in Northern California: 1969-1970.
Gladen, Frank H.
Twenty programs about conservation and forest fire prevention were telecast to kindergarten and first-grade children. The programs, each 20 minutes long, were especially prepared for that age group. Testing of experimental and control groups showed that the telecasts were outstandingly successful in teaching concepts about those subjects, particularly to first graders. Although minor difficulties were encountered in broadcast reception and in having suitable situations or equipment for the viewing time, the series met with general approval from teachers and administrators. Classroom teachers felt that the technical production was not up to commercial television quality and that the television teacher presented the material well but should have supplemented her lectures with other types of material.
