The "Inside/Out" Evaluation; The First Five Programs. Part I.
Kuhlman, Charles; Wiley, William
The National Instructional Television health series, "Inside/Out," is designed to assist eight-to-ten year old children and their teachers in dealing with their feelings about themselves, others, and the world around them. The programs are accompanied by classroom discussion. Three methods were used to test the effectiveness of "Inside/Out". They were 1) a specially designed classroom observation system (used by trained observers) for measuring relevant categories of teacher and student discussion following the program viewing; 2) teacher and observer questionnaires dealing with teacher and student reaction to programs and discussion; and 3) in depth interviews with small groups of school children who had viewed programs in the series but not participated in classroom discussion. The first programs presented dramatic situations on the themes of expressing emotion, death, prejudice, amount of responsibility children were given. This volume of the evaluation presents summaries of results from observers' and teachers' questionnaires; the relation of teacher ratings of their classes' ability and socio-economic level to student understanding and appreciation of the programs; teacher attitudes toward affective learning; their reactions to the programs; and the effect of teacher participation in discussion on student participation in discussion.
