The Literate Adolescent in an Age of Mass Media.
Cameron, Jack R.; Plattor, Emma E.
Some uses of the mass media for educating the adolescent are discussed, and the fact that teachers have generally neglected using mass media devices is emphasized. Multisensory stimuli are seen to enhance the excitement and drama of the written page and to be essential to a concept of literacy broad enough to encompass all aspects of critical and creative communication. Two projects involving the use of motion pictures and tape recordings to complement poetry are discussed. The first project planned a film and sound track for chosen poems. The second project used haiku written by the students because this poetry lent itself well to the multimedia approach. Some examples of haiku written by teachers and students are included. (RT)
