A Bookless Curriculum.
Brown, Roland G.
If a student reaches high school and cannot read, the only route to success may lie in a media-oriented curriculum. In line with this philosophy, this report describes an experimental media-based curriculum developed to capitalize on the students' ability to grasp the visual image in situations where they cannot grasp the written image. The philosophy behind the concept of a bookless curriculum is discussed first; then the objectives of the program and how it has been implemented are outlined. A year's lesson plans, centering around the use of mass media, are detailed. For each lesson plan, a particular film or discussion topic is identified, and the source, length, and a synopsis of each suggested film are provided, along with information about rental costs. Discussion questions and suggestions for small-group activity are also provided. Appendixes provide the teacher with student questionnaires, statistical data derived from a pilot project, and 12 production units the teacher may want to use for class involvement and participation.
