Media and the Disadvantaged--A Review of the Literature.
Wade, Serena E.
This review covers books, journal articles, and ERIC documents, 1966 and later. Much emphasis is placed on media program and project descriptions, rather than reports of completed research. The review points to trends of common media use and student performance and tries to shed some light on the general direction of future media efforts for the disadvantaged. These propositions are supported in the review: (1) media are useful in extending frames of reference and providing models and motivation for the disadvantaged; (2) media can emphasize each individual's approach to learning (thereby de-emphasizing the learning disadvantages with which some children come to school); (3) media can teach basic skills, but seem to be inadequate to teach assimilation skills to the disadvantaged; (4) projects that focus on older disadvantaged children or adults will have greater difficulty in achieving noticeable success in a short period of time, mainly because these individuals are more difficult to reach. Critique and marginal comments are provided by Adelaide Jablosky. Bibliography, including ERIC document numbers, is included. (Author)
