Reading and Television: Some Concerns; Some Answers!
Shaughnessy, Michael F.; And Others
This paper discusses the relationship of reading and television and describes a "critical viewing skills" program ("Spudbuster") for combatting the effects of prolonged TV watching. The paper enumerates helpful suggestions for both parents and teachers to ensure that children's television watching is not excessive and that what children do watch contributes to their education and fosters quality learning. The paper hopes to sensitize teachers and parents to the "enemy" in the living room and the resultant problems of inordinate TV watching. (Author/NKA)
