Television and Social Studies: Synergy and Symbiosis.
Joyce, Bruce R.; And Others
Educational television has not yet reached its full potential for supporting the social studies in American public schools. The most effective roles for television have not yet been defined, nor have social studies educators developed the production thrust that can enable television to fill a major role in social studies education. This document contains recommendations of a study initiated by the National Television Instructional Center in which educators set forth guidelines for use of television by social studies curriculum makers. Identification is made of various missions and means in the social studies curriculum area and the support roles that television could fulfill within each of them are described. Goals and curricular patterns of existing and emerging social studies approaches are defined and a framework for decision-making suggested. Instruction is viewed as the means to accomplish particular curriculum goals. Cited are six instructional strategies with an analysis of the social studies curriculum patterns and the use of television in terms of the current and potential strategies they represent. Specific recommendations for actions for the application of television to social studies improvement are made. (Author/SHM)
