Working with Student Teachers to Produce a Television Program for Preschool Children and Their Parents.
Schilling, Deanna E.
Increasing interest in the concept of parents as educators of their children and the increasing availability to public groups of television air time make possible unique opportunities for teacher training. This paper describes the "Just for You" program, a television series for preschool children and their parents. The program is produced with the assistance of early childhood education teaching credential candidates who serve as on-camera teachers. While working with preschool children, these students model effective teaching strategies and provide rationales for the activities demonstrated. How the program began and developed is discussed. Evaluation, dissemination, and future goals are commented upon. Appendices A through M provide: (A) notes on producing a television show; (B) a guide for students on planning activities; (C) hints for teaching on-camera; (D) a format for a home instruction activity sheet; (E) a parent information sheet; (F) helpful hints to participating parents; (G) a program evaluation form for parents; (H) a form for the evaluation of child interest in program activities; (I) a job sheet; (J) a summary of parent responses to interviews by students; (K) additional comments by students about their experience; (L) a description of the television and educational programming courses; and (M) a bibliography.
