A Series of Adult Reading Improvement Lessons for Instructional Television.
Panes, Paul Benjamin
Aimed at adults reading on a junior high school level, this study developed a series of reading improvement lessons for use with instructional television. Special problems included identifying the desired skills, determining specific instructional methods, and choosing modes of presentation suitable for television. Pertinent data were gathered from research studies and other literature. A model lesson was written, videotaped, and viewed by a panel of experts. Their suggestions were submitted to the investigator, who incorporated them in the lesson plans. Seventeen lessons were prepared on study skills, comprehension and interpretation, reading rate, and vocabulary; each lesson was then presented in identical format. Two presentations--a script outline and a television guide booklet--were made for each lesson. Designed for television directors, the script indicates the time devoted to each activity as well as audio and video presentations. The booklets include lesson numbers, topics, lesson plans and objectives, summaries of telecast content, important principles, and suggested followup activities, followed by references and visual aids.
