Maximizing Use of the Media Center.
Bezzi, D. R.; And Others
The media center concept of education implies making available many types of materials to aid children in learning. The success of the media program depends on continued cooperation between teachers and the media specialist. A media program encourages and enables pupils to pursue individual interests while teachers or media specialists are engaged in teaching others. This text presents suggestions and guidelines to media specialists and teachers in the establishment of a maximum use media program. Consideration must be given to space and facilities, and to selection of materials and equipment based on curriculum needs of the school. Teachers need orientation to the program, and an outline of activities based on curriculum needs is included for kindergarten and grades one though six, with sample skill review questions. A wide selection of books in media centers is essential, for variation is needed to develop standards of judgement. Suggested units and activities in literature, social studies, science, mathematics, art and music, physical education and health, and foreign languages are described, as well as suggested activities to encourage community-media center cooperation.
