How to Encourage Socially-Valued Behavior.
Leifer, Aimee Dorr
This study investigated the influence of structured children's television programming on prosocial behavior. Subjects were 53 children ages 4-6, from two day care centers. Nine videotapes were produced (three for each of three experimental conditions) differing in their presentation of socially-valued behavior, socially-devalued behavior, consequences, and characters. Tapes were black and white and about 20-25 minutes in length. Prior to viewing the tapes, during viewing, and after viewing, the children were observed and/or tested in four different situations using three different measures: (1) an individual test on Piagetian tasks, (2) observation of social behavior in two structured tasks, (3) observation of social behavior occurring naturally in the child's day care center, and (4) observation of attention to the videotapes during viewing. Findings and implications are discussed. (BRT)
