Television News Program. 1968 Report.
Pittsburgh Public Schools, PA.
The Pittsburgh Public Schools' television news program, "News 67-68," aimed at the fifth and sixth grade levels is conceived as a means of instructing students about the significance of national and local news events using television as an instructional device. An evaluation of the program was carried out by means of a questionnaire administered to 50 teachers and through some informal staff interviews. Twenty-nine teachers returned the questionnaire (58%); and of these teachers, 21 reported viewing one or more programs per month. Those who use the program are largely satisfied with it, though room for improvement is cited in the area of program dynamics. The most common impediments to program use are increasing scheduling difficulties, inadequate viewing facilities, and inadequate teacher information on the value and use of television teaching. An outline of the program format and the teacher questionnaire are appended. (MT)
