Using Videotape to Motivate Junior High Students to Read.
Dietrich, Dorothy M.
A recent study was made by classroom teachers to determine why junior high school students were having difficulty in learning to read. More than half of the students who read below grade level appeared to lack motivation. A closed circuit television system was combined with other materials--including kits, book, listening centers--and called the Graphics Expression Reading Improvement System (GERIS). The teacher's objective was to help students improve their reading skills and to provide practice in using these skills effectively. Each student's objective was to produce a tape that he could show to classmates or his parents. The GERIS program utilized an eight-step process in which help was given in the reading lab on a one-to-one basis, and students were programed into those skills and materials they needed most. The program to this point has been successful in motivating students to read. (RB)
