Findings and Cognition on the Television Perception of Children and Young People Based on the Prize-Winning Programme of Prix Jeunesse 1968: The Scarecrow.
Garry, Ralph, Comp.
A summary of the research in five different countries on how children respond to the prize winning program of Prix Jeunesse 1968, "The Scarecrow," is presented in the report. A first part briefly describes and then offers findings across all the studies: that the children in all countries liked the program, but perhaps not all would have selected it to win the prize; that the children identified with and liked the scarecrow; that unaided recall of the program's content was low and increased with age; and that there were age differences in comprehension of the moral lesson of the program and in understanding of the reality-fantasy difference. A set of comparisons between the results of these studies and those about a previous prize winner, "Patrik and Putrik", completes the introductory section. The remainder of the report provides presentations of the studies by country--United States, Great Britain, Germany, France, and Czechoslovakia. (SH)
