Audio-Visual Media as an Instructional Technique for Reducing Prejudice in Young Children.
Houser, Betsy Bosak
A study was conducted to determine the effectiveness of two educational films, "Skipper Learns a Lesson" and "The Toymaker," to shape children's perception of minority groups. Before and after viewing the films, 153 grade-school-aged children were asked to look at coloring book style portraits of Caucasian and minority children and to rate them according to 12 personal attributes. Results showed that prejudiced responses were significantly reduced after viewing. (EMH)
