Career Approach to Media Development: Producing Slide and Slide-Tape Presentations. Career Education Monograph Series: Volume 1, Number 3.
The monograph is intended to demonstrate how the production of a slidetape show can become a multidisciplinary exercise that helps students become creative users of information, rather than passive receivers of information. Career education and audiovisual media instruction are both cross-disciplinary in nature and can be infused into existing curricula, without drastic alterations in instructional plans; the objective: to help youngsters look beyond the production to understand the process involved in putting it together, i.e., the cooperation of individuals who contribute talents and skills to the overall effort. The method has been classroom-tested by the staff of the Yonkers Career Education Project, and is presented step by step in the monograph. In the first phase of the process, students analyze commercially prepared filmstrips to prepare a list of job descriptions for persons who participate in producing them; in the second, the class organizes and produces its own, first slidetape show. The monograph covers materials, script, location, photo editing, graphics, and recording. Proceeding to more sophisticated productions, the monograph describes an illustrative project entitled "Workers in Our Community," and again offers step-by-step suggestions for later student productions, infused with career education concepts such as labor specialization.
