Assessment of a Self-Instructional Conversion Model for Elementary Schools. Final Report.
Schreiber, Rachel; Markel, Geraldine
A project to develop a "Self-instructional Conversion Model for Elementary Schools" comprising 46 audiotutorial lessons designed for use at various grade levels is described. Selected lessons were produced for language arts, mathematics, social studies, and science. Each teacher planned the lessons, organized the materials, tried the lessons with several pupils, made revisions, submitted lessons to the project evaluator who suggested further revisions, and finally teachers used them regularly with students. The lessons proved to be expensive in terms of production hours in relation to instructional time. Audiotutorial lessons were useful for reteaching children, giving further practice, and also in presenting new skills and new information to children who have a special interest in a subject. They did not appeal to elementary age children or to their teachers as much as the literature indicates they have appealed to older students. (Author/DGC)
