Crawford, Patricia; Rapoport, Max
To test the validity of hypotheses regarding television violence and social behavior of viewers, a survey was conducted of a large stratified sample of sixth grade and kindergarten pupils and of teachers. The student survey identified: (1) frequency with which pupils watch television; (2) parental control of television viewing; (3) family activities; (4) reasons for watching television; (5) degree of selectivity of programs; (6) student perception of televised violence; and (7) favorite programs. The survey of teachers identified: (1) the extent to which teachers used television in their classrooms; (2) teacher perceptions of violence on television; (3) teacher views on the impact of television violence; and (4) student behaviors which teachers identified as directly attributable to television violence. Sample questionnaires are included. (EMH)
