Developing Instructional Television Products for Effective Parenthood: I. A National Assessment of Parent Education Needs.
Gotts, Edward E.; And Others
This presentation reports the results of a national assessment study of parenting skills. The aim of this study was to provide direction for the development of a television series to improve and increase awareness of parenting skills among parents of young children and prospective parents. Over 200 existing media items were located and evaluated; existing parenting practices were analyzed from within parent-focused programs; and a national sample of nearly 1800 parents of young children was surveyed by a questionnaire designed to determine their needs and preferences for the series' educational content, instructional strategies, and production formats. Conclusions drawn from the study relate to instructional product development issues in television. The evaluation form and questionnaires are appended to the report. (Author/SC)
