Eye Movements as an Index of Television Viewing Strategies.
O'Bryan, K. G.
The eye movement patterns of good readers, poor readers and functionally illiterate children are discussed in relation to television and filmstrip viewing and comic book reading. Studies conducted since 1972 on the eye movement patterns of children between 9 and 11 years of age are described and the results discussed. Suggestions are presented concerning the production of TV shows, comic books and filmstrips for use in reading remediation. These include (1) the most effective use of printed material on the screen in conjunction with action in children's educational television shows; (2) the best placement of print, amount and size of print, type of presentation, relationship of words to action, and types of art work for comic books; and from preliminary findings, (3) the best timing, visual to audio relationship, and position and type of print for filmstrips based on comic book formats.
