Pfau, Glenn S.
Presented is the final report on Project Life (Language Improvement to Facilitate Education), a 12-year (1963-75) project which developed filmstrips and supplementary materials for teaching language to deaf children. General overview and historical review sections include information on project goals and objectives, administration agencies and associated individuals, and funding. Discussed is the rationale underlying the three instructional content areas: perceptual training, perceptual thinking, and language reading. The next three sections focus on a historical tracing of hardware development, marketing/dissemination, and evaluation of Project LIFE materials. Summarized in a final chapter on 1975 systems development accomplishments are the contents of a picture dictionary, 12 biography filmstrips, and 104 programed filmstrips on topics such as plants, health, and the universe. Appendixes include lists of Project LIFE field test centers, consultants, publications, research and evaluation studies, research and evaluation forms, and marketing and consultant critique information.
