Wheeler, Patricia; And Others
This formative review of a project designed to help high school students become more discriminating television viewers (1) presents a description of the curriculum designed during the project to foster critical television viewing in teenagers, (2) outlines the major tasks involved in the formative review of the curriculum, and (3) presents and discusses the results of the formative review process. After a brief introduction to the project, a detailed account of the formative review is presented, including discussions of the design of the review process, the identification of qualified reviewers, the development of the evaluation instrument, data collection, and data processing and analysis. The results of the data analysis are then examined, with specific attention given to the teacher's guide and to a unit-by-unit analysis of the student textbook on television viewing. The conclusions and recommendations of the review panel close the report. A set of 29 data tables accompany the text. Appended are a list of the reviewers, the curriculum review form, and a list of alternative curriculum titles. A copy of the Teacher's Guide with revisions suggested by the reviewers is also attached. (JL)
