Black and White and Read All Over: Acquiring Literacy in Two Media.
Fowles, Barbara R.
"The Electric Company" (TEC) uses a television format to introduce young viewers to the concepts of phonetics and word recognition. Though its presentation is intended to strengthen fundamental reading skills, some presentations tend to confuse viewers because they mix the essential attributes of print code with the incidental attributes of the television presentation. This is especially true for preschool viewers. This monograph examines the instructional objectives of TEC and criticizes the format of the program by providing examples of misleading presentations.
