Correspondence Education; A Survey of Applications, Methods, and Problems.
Holmberg, Boerje
A survey is presented of the types of problems which correspondence educators have to consider today. After discussion of the general characteristics and definitions of correspondence study, varying traditions in different parts of the world as to subject matter and student body are covered. A large, detailed section is given to the construction of a correspondence lesson and a correspondence course; it includes the planning and arrangement of material, new approaches, independent courses and courses based on textbooks, the use of subsidiary material, style and language, illustrations, typography, summing-ups and study helps, students' technique of study, and means to help students secure knowledge acquired (repetitions and introductory surveys, questions, exercises, diagnostic and prognostic tests). A concluding section covers the teacher at work, advising students and supervising study, the impetus to apply supervised correspondence study in schools, the correspondence school and its administrative problems, and supplementary oral instruction. A bibliography and a list of correspondence institutions whose correspondence courses were studied are added. (EB)
