Television and the Classroom Reading Program. Reading Aids Series.
Becker, George J.
This booklet is intended for classroom teachers who would like to teach reading within the context of television. Most of the activities presented in this booklet pertain directly to reading, but other aspects of a language arts program (listening, speaking, and writing) are also given some attention. The activities are designed to serve as a series of starting points toward improved reading skills. Only the television programs which the child watches at home are dealt with. The contents include: "How to Get Started," which encourages teachers to watch television themselves to determine how various programs could be related to reading instruction, identify those television programs which could be considered of good quality, and survey the students to determine their favorite television programs; and "How to Use Television to Improve Instruction," which presents techniques for using television to improve the student's listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.
