Reading Behaviors of Young Children Who Viewed "The Electric Company". A Final Report.
Sproull, Natalie L.; And Others
Though the television program "The Electric Company" was intended for a second and third grade audience, in May of 1975 the Children's Television Workshop undertook an evaluation of the effects of the program on four, five, and six year olds. The research was aimed at measuring reading gains, the retention of reading gains, and the differential effects of the age of the viewer. The main portion of the text describes the research design, instrumentation, results, and conclusions. The appendixes supply examples of the data collection instruments, and they provide extensive examples of "The Electric Company" curriculum. (EMH)
