An Analysis of Mass Media Requirements for Secondary School Social Studies Certification and Attitudes of Secondary Education Chairpersons Toward These Requirements and Mass Media Education.
Allen, Michael G.; Lee, Seong
This study investigated the state of mass media course requirements relative to secondary school social studies teacher certification, and assessed the university level secondary education department chairpersons' attitudes towards mass media education in general for 190 undergraduate secondary education departments. Slightly more than 95 percent of the teacher education departments surveyed did not require a course in mass media for secondary school social studies certification; it is hypothesized that this is a primary factor in the underpreparation of secondary school teachers to effectively instruct mass media classes. Results of the survey are presented in tabular form, and a copy of the instrument used is included. (LH)
