Use of Advance Organizers and Guide Material in Viewing Science Motion Pictures in a Ninth Grade.
Thelen, Judith Nanette
Reported is a study directed toward the advantage of using advance organizers to promote recall of motion picture content and/or attitudes toward films as instructional tools in science teaching. Three hundred forty ninth-grade students were assigned to four treatment groups, but only those students present for all treatment (N=137) were included in the statistical analyses. Pre- and post-attitude scales, a content test after each film viewed and a test in retention two weeks after treatment was completed were administered to all groups. One treatment group received advance organizers prior to film presentation as well as independent study guides for use in small group discussions; a second group received guides but no advance organizers; and a third group received advance organizers but no guides. Group discussion was limited. The control group viewed the film and discussed it in the same manner as group three. No significant differences were found, for students using advance organizers, on content tests immediately following each film. The interaction of advance organizers and guides was found to be non-significant. Significant differences in attitude change (negative) were found between groups using or not using advance organizers. (Author/EB)
