A New Motivation for Learning: The Graphics Expression System. Manual for Administrators.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Educational Communications.; Uniondale Union Free School District 2, NY.
This manual describes how the Uniondale, New York, school district uses a technological system, the Graphics Expression System (GES), to produce dramatic reading improvement on the part of elementary school underachievers. It shows how GES, based upon the assumption that all youngsters want to communicate, employs a television mini-studio and an eight step process to motivate students to develop reading and other communication skills. It reviews the fundamental activities necessary for the implementation of GES, beginning with investigations by administrators and teachers, followed by faculty and parent meetings, contracting for hardware, identification of criteria, selection of participants, inservice staff training, and program scheduling. Classroom procedures such as logistics and orientation are covered and information is given on the process whereby students: 1) pick a topic; 2) research it; 3) prepare graphics; 4) write a script; 5) practice reading it; 6) tape a run-through; 7) evaluate the topic; and 8) record a final tape.
