An Exploration: Media in the Affective Domain.
Miller, Bernard W.
A proposed project will attempt to alter the attitudes toward disadvantaged urban children which are held by students in an elementary teacher education program. There are both theoretical reasons and empirical evidence to indicate that filmmaking and film viewing are effective means of facilitating learning, interpersonal communication, emotional growth, and sensitivity to others; therefore, the project will use the production, viewing and analysis of a motion picture about inner-city children to modify the attitudes of the teacher trainees. Students will first be taught the rudiments of filmmaking and then split into teams to film segments which will be edited into a composite product. After viewing, a variety of techniques will be used to analyze the movie, including group discussion, encounter activities and role-playing. A psychologist, a sociologist, and an educator will provide support and counseling during the analysis phase. A variety of affective measurement instruments will be used to assess changes in attitudes and values, thereby determining if the procedure was an effective means of affective modification. (PB)
