Shew, Phillip, Ed.; Muscara, Sandra, Ed.
The perspectives of this document, which explores the relationships between television and reading instruction, are both theoretical and practical. Articles in the first section establish a frame of reference for evaluating the use of television in reading instruction, focusing particularly on the relationships among media and their import for education. The second section evaluates the impact of "Sesame Street" to date, examines the rationale and the curriculum of "Electric Company," and contains a study of the effects of these programs on the learning of early reading skills in selected preschool children. The third section includes information about instructional television programs operating in New Jersey and contains related materials on the use of videotape recorders. The last section consists of selected models of media interaction in practice, ranging from programs specifically focusing on television and reading to broader communications approaches. (JM)
