How Can Educational Television Be Used Effectively in Improving Reading?
Carroll, Hazel Horn
Having screened preview films and tapes and teacher manuals for educational television series available for his students' viewing, the teacher can identify the kinds of reading skills typically emphasized in each, perhaps charting them for ready reference. Subsequently, the preparation the teacher gives students before they view the programs and the activities into which he leads them after the viewing can deepen both enjoyment and learning; but the teacher must be flexible enough to capitalize upon potentially fruitful though unexpected turns in class activity. Such projects as creative dramatization, newspaper analysis, puppetry, and poetry composition have engaged the interest and talents of elementary school children whose class work has been planned in conjunction with educational television programs. (Sources of 8 program series are cited and a chart of reading skills they emphasize is provided.) (RD)
