Project Media Now--A Bold Look at New Curricula.
Curtis, Ron
This paper discusses a media study project in the elementary and secondary schools of Iowa. The project developed a media study for secondary students and a college companion (or adopter) course to prepare teachers in this new curriculum. The project employed behavioral science techniques and individualized instruction for both courses. The objectives of the student course included eight modules devoted to study in the production, aesthetics, interpretation, hardware, genres, evaluation, presentation, and language of the various media. The adopter course, a self-instructional course teaching media with media, was intended to facilitate the adoption of the student course; the course includes study of film, radio, and television. The paper also discusses methods for evaluating student performance, including standardized tests, original instrument design, and measurements of attitudes toward the various media. (Author/DI)
