The Evaluation of "Sesame Street's" Social Goals: The Interpersonal Strategies of Cooperation, Conflict Resolution, and Differing Perspectives.
McDonald, D. Lynn; Paulson, F. Leon
This report reviews "Sesame Street's" development of procedure and materials for the 1970-1971 season with emphasis on the social goals of cooperation, conflict resolution, and realization of differing perspectives. These goals mark a departure from the first year of programing which emphasized cognitive learning objectives. Research design, situational testing of social goals, and development of scoring procedures are discussed. The results of pilot testing will lead to further program and test refinement in anticipation of a larger scale effort to teach social goals during the third season. (Author/AJ)
