Learning Through Media; An IMC Handbook for Chelmsford Teachers.
Morrow, James; Wallace, Daniel
This handbook is designed to provide basic information that is necessary to use the Chelmsford School System's Instructional Media Center (IMC). It defines six different media (print, sound, television, photography, movies and design) and suggests a series of separate classroom production activities in each. An emphasis is given to the ways in which media may be used to teach fundamental processes and concepts inherent in five major subject matter disciplines (language arts, science, mathematics, social studies, and foreign languages). It is suggested that a teacher can teach such fundamental skills as translation, grouping, transformation, point of view, cause and effect, and prediction in the context of each subject area. It also provides some practical advice in handling media tools such as projectors, sound equipment, and cameras. The last part introduces technical and library services available at the IMC. The cost of technical services is outlined in the Appendix. (CH)
