A Study of Teacher Prepared Classroom Audio and Visual Materials and Courses Available to South Bend Area Teachers in Audiovisual Production.
Sayles, Ellen L.
A study was made to find out the average amount of time that teachers in South Bend, Indiana spent designing audiovisual aids and to determine their awareness of the availability of audiovisual production classes. A questionnaire was sent to 30% of the teachers of grades 1-6 asking the amount of time they normally spent producing audiovisual materials. A check list was also sent to indicate usage. Three questions were then asked concerning the audiovisual classes that were offered to the teachers. All completed surveys were scored as a test on computer answer sheets and sent to Indiana University for analysis. It was found that the teachers spent time outside of the classroom preparing aids even during the summer months. Teachers in the lower grades spent more time doing production than those in the upper grades. Over 60% of the teachers were aware of the production classes offered, but few had taken advantage of the classes. Statistical results as derived by the computer print out sheets are presented in seven tables. A copy of the questionnaire, responses to the questions, and grade distribution of teachers are appended. (DS)
