Use Of, and Reaction To, Educational Television Lessons (KTCA, Channel 2) by Minneapolis Elementary School Teachers 1970-71.
Faunce, R. W.
Results of a survey showed that 95% of Minneapolis, Minn., elementary school children are exposed to educational television (ETV) lessons. The typical classroom teacher used ETV in three or four subject areas. More than nine out of 10 teachers reported satisfaction with the programs used. More than 80% of the teachers were satisfied with programing for all subject matter areas. Least satisfaction was reported for mathematics (83%) and most for language arts (96%). About half the teachers made recommendations for improvement. Most of these focused on improved scheduling, a need for more films, the need for more TV sets and better equipment maintenance. Of these, improved scheduling was the most frequently mentioned need. The 344 teachers who responded represented 89% of the teachers polled and 29% of all elementary teachers in the system.
