Sesame Street Viewing Volunteer's Guide: A Guide to be Used for Conducting Viewing Sessions of Sesame Street with Preschoolers.
Filep, Robert T.; Gillette, Pearl T.
This guide was prepared to aid volunteers working with preschool children before, during, and after viewing the television program, "Sesame Street". Suggestions in this booklet grew out of a study called the Sesame Mother Pilot Project conducted in 1970-71 by the Institute for Educational Development. This guide is divided into nine main parts: what "Sesame Street" is all about, you and the children, ways of organizing viewing sessions, arranging the viewing area, involving parents and children in the viewing group, suggestions for volunteers while working with the children, the goals of "Sesame Street", sample games and suggestions, and recruiting material. A Spanish language version of the guide is available as PS 005 154. (Author/AJ)
