Enrichment through Radio: A Proposal to Use Radio as a Tool of Instruction from Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 12.
Kornhauser, Louis H.; Brooke, Pamela
A project in Washington, D.C., used classroom radio as a language arts tool to solve some of the classroom problems (i.e., lack of materials dealing with ghetto children, classroom discipline problems, and the inability of those unable to speak standard English to learn to read and write) which prevent disadvantaged, dialect-speaking children from overcoming their language difficulties. Four types of radio problems (i.e., information, identification, topic, and imagination programs) were selected to attain several performance objectives. As teacher involvement in the planning and production of broadcasts was essential, such training as in-service workshops was implemented and steps were taken to bring both teachers and students into the program. Steps were also taken to assure the dissemination of tapes and teacher materials to schools not involved in the project. (Appended materials include a report on a survey of American radio stations providing instructional programs, a list of schools participating in the project, a sample teacher guide for a program for students in grades 10-12, an evaluation of a classroom radio project, a summary report of a workshop on the use of radio, and a sample schedule of broadcasts.)
