A Project for the Improvement of Music Education at Elementary, Junior High, Senior High, and College Levels through the Use of Non-Book Instructional Media. Final Report.
Vasil, Thomas, Comp. and Ed.
At a summer conference held in 1966 at Lexington High School in Massachusetts, participants, representative geographically and by learning level, developed packets of audiovisual materials for Music Education. The use of these packets (accompanied by study guides) during the following academic year, 1966-67, was followed by a second summer conference where interpretation of evaluation results was added to the basic procedures of the first conference. In the second academic year, 1967-68, the materials were used in more situations, enhancing the final assessment of evaluation results by the third summer conference. Objectives of the project to produce and evaluate audiovisual materials for all levels of music education were attained by an informal research procedure. It was concluded that the use of non-book instructional materials is an effective means of improving music education, but the misuse of such materials will almost as certainly cause harm. The final conclusion was that a multimedia approach has its greatest value in allowing for variety of presentation modes. A glossary, a list of project staff, and an inventory of materials are appended. (RP/MF)
