Families of the World. A Series of Five Television Programs for Elementary Students.
New York State Education Dept. , Albany. Bureau of Mass Communications.
"Families of the World," a series of five, thirty minute television programs designed for elementary children, was produced by the Japanese Broadcasting Company and UNICEF. The programs document the changing role of the family by depicting every day family life in five representative countries throughout the developing world: India, Zambia, Thailand, Turkey, and Costa Rica. The students are presented with the commonality of familial responsibility and the diversity of family structure throughout the series. Each program focuses on the place of the children in the family, the smallest fundamental and universal social unit. The impact of new ideas and values of family life, as well as the strength of traditional patterns, is explored. Each section of the document, arranged in similar format, includes a list of concepts to be discussed, several instructional objectives, and suggested teacher strategies. The series is available for duplication onto slant track video tape, and is available in either black and white or color photography. Further information can be obtained from the New York State Education Department, Bureau of Mass Communications. (Author/OPH)
