Statement of the Instructional Goals for Children's Television Workshop.
Children's Television Workshop, New York, NY.
Children's Television Workshop (CTW) is an experiment in the instruction of preschool children through the medium of broadcast television. This document, which incorporates, extends, and supersedes an earlier report of a meeting to establish priorities among goals for CTW, serves six related purposes: (1) it attempts to reflect the suggestions of the many consultants to the project; (2) it provides a framework for organizing the project's goals; (3) it proposes priority objectives toward which the CTW experiment should be especially directed; (4) it provides specific operational examples of goals; (5) it serves as a common reference for the production and summative evaluation phases of the project; and (6) it communicates with the project's sponsors, advisors, and consultants, as well as the general public. The goals of the project fall into the overlapping categories of Symbolic Representation (letters, numbers, geometric forms), Reasoning and Problem Solving, and Familiarity with the Physical and Social Environment. Specific goals are extensively outlined within these categories and those which are considered the primary instructional objectives of CTW are marked with an asterisk. Evaluation of the project will be handled by Educational Testing Service. (MH)
