Virginia: A TV Social Studies Experience. A Background Paper.
Thompson, Gerald Wayne
This report describes an instructional package designed to replace a set of unsatisfactory textbooks used to teach State history, government, and geography to 4th-, 7th-, 11th-, and 12th-grade students in Virginia. The format of the package, taking what is described as the "inquiry approach", revolves around a series of short television programs with pre- and post-viewing classroom activities. The report is divided into three major sections. The first discusses instructional methodology--inquiry, concept learning, and valuing. The second describes the format of a typical unit of instruction, and the third reviews the extant literature on research in instructional television. Two typical lessons are attached as appendixes.
