Measurement of Listening Comprehension Via Television in Elementary School Spanish Instruction; Development of Programed Learning Materials for Use with Televised Spanish Instruction; Results in First, Second, and Third Year Research. Denver-Stanford Project on the Context of Instructional Television.
Andrade, Manuel; And Others
The Stanford-Denver Project is a continuing study of elementary school Spanish instruction. These five documents report on various aspects of this study, especially the use of new technology to make instruction of Spanish more efficient. The first study details the construction of a listening comprehension test which could be given via television to students who can neither write nor read Spanish. The second discusses the development of programed learning materials for Spanish instruction and their effectiveness. The third document presents the results from an experiment testing different utilizations of instructional television. The fourth reports on experiments done to determine the proper time to begin study of written Spanish, and along with the fifth study, compares teacher instruction with automated instruction. A combination of both techniques is found to be preferable to either alone. The fifth study examines the use of audio aids in earlier grades and finds them efficacious. (BB)
