Encouraging Social Competence with Television.
Leifer, Aimee Dorr
In order to learn more about the potential of television for teaching prosocial values, an experiment is described which will use as subjects preschool children attending nursery schools or day care centers. Brief videotapes, 15-20 minutes long, will be made from material taken primarily from Sesame Street. They will vary in the explicitness of the prosocial behavior message. Baseline data will be gathered for each child which measures stage of cognitive development, their level of positive social behavior, level of cooperative behavior, and previous exposure to Sesame Street. Before and after viewing the videotapes each child will be observed in the school setting. The resulting data will be analyzed to determine what, if any, effect viewing the videotapes had on the behavior of the children. (JY)
