When People Think Television Is a Window on Their World.
Leifer, Aimee Dorr; And Others
Preparatory to developing a curriculum for parents to use in teaching children how to evaluate the reality and applicability of television in their lives, interviews were held with 13-year-olds and 16-year-olds and adult whites, blacks, and Puerto Ricans around Boston to determine the processes they used to make such discrimination. The methodology of the interview is described, and representative answers from various respondents given. The coding methods and cross-checking systems are explained. Preliminary analysis of the responses is given, and contrasts between adult and 13-year-old responses are listed. Plans for future questioning of children, aged 4, 8, and 12, are described, along with plans for developing the proposed curriculum. (SK)
