McHugh, Walter J.
The education television programs presented in this manual are designed to acquaint viewers and readers with the variety of reading methods and approaches which are receiving wide attention today. The series consists of 15 one-half hour programs, each of which is designed to accomplish the following objectives: to explain the philosophy and viewpoint of an approach, to acquaint teachers with the materials used in the approach, to have a master teacher demonstrate the approach, to discuss with the teachers why they might use a particular approach, to discuss and review with nationally known experts in the field of reading the pros and cons of each method or system to be studied, and to analyze and evaluate each approach fairly. The approaches and topics covered are: words in color, the Initial Teaching Alphabet, perceptual approaches, linguistic approaches, language experience, phonic supplements, individualized reading, programed instruction, language and reading readiness, enrichment and supplementary materials, and the basal reader. A materials index is also included. (WR)
