Film Preference Patterns of Fourth and Fifth Grade Children.
Cox, Carole Alice Shirreffs
This study identifies and describes the interest patterns of 218 fourth and fifth grade children in two schools in Baton Rouge, Louisiana--one black Title I school, one white suburban school--as they pertain to the content and technique of the short film, and to determine whether these interest were related to sex, or race-socioeconomic status. All subjects viewed and rated 24 short films on a scale of one to five. It was concluded that children like best those films which depict children in realistic settings, sex is not associated significantly with children's film preferences, race and socioeconomic status is moderately associated with degree-of-interest in films, and narrative-live-action films are most popular with children.
