Developing Printed Supplementary Materials to Accompany Satellite Programming for Junior High School Students. Satellite Technology Demonstration, Technical Report No. 0508.
Lonsdale, Helen C.; O'Neill, Donald W.
To implement a career education program for junior high school students in the rural, isolated areas of the Rocky Mountain States, Satellite Technology Demonstration (STD) tested the use of a satellite-assisted communications system for the delivery of social services. A magazine was designed to promote acceptance of the television programing and actively involve the students. A correlated teacher's guide was designed to supplement the STD's educational programing. The magazine and teacher's guide were both pretested in the field and at various sites. Approximately 50 percent of the students at the STD sites rated the magazine good to excellent. Teachers rated the guide as having an average message effectiveness. A flow chart illustrates the designing and writing of supplementary materials. (Author/DS)
