Corder-Bolz, Charles R.
This report summarizes the activities of a two-year project to develop curriculum materials to encourage and enable students in grades K through 5 to learn critical television viewing skills, and to use these skills to become evaluative consumers of television. A review of the project provides background information; describes the specific activities performed to reach students, parents, and teachers; lists 12 concepts from the scientific literature which were used as the research base for the development of materials; discusses the approach to materials development and the formats used for materials for students, parents, and teachers; and notes the involvement of major parent, education, and youth serving organizations in the project. Facets of the project discussed in more detail in individual chapters include the Curriculum Review Board, collaboration, specific products, field testing, workshops, dissemination and distribution, and problems encountered. Also included are financial reports, milestone schedules, and summaries of quarterly reports. (MER)
