The Effects of the Bilingual Spanish/English Television Series "Carrascolendas" on the Oral Language Skills of Selected Primary Children.
Sutton, Arlene Vigil
The purpose of this study was to measure the learning effects of "Carrascolendas," a Spanish/English television series, on selected primary school children in Pueblo, Colorado. The subjects, 160 randomly selected children, were tested with two criterion referenced tests, one in Spanish and one in English. Ten weeks after viewing the series, 128 of the same children were posttested. To test the null hypotheses, posttest scores were analyzed (1) between children who viewed the series and children who did not, (2) between Mexican-American and non-Mexican-American children, and (3) among kindergarten, first, second, and third grade levels. The experimental group consisted of 48 Mexican-American and 48 non-Mexican-American children. The control group consisted of 16 Mexican-American and 16 non-Mexican-American children. The results suggested that viewing "Carrascolendas" helped the achievement of primary children, especially Mexican-American children at the first grade level. (Author/WR)
