Television and the Teaching of English.
Maxwell, Rhoda, Ed.
Recognizing that students spend more time before the television set than in school, this monograph evaluates television as a potential resource in the teaching of English. The nine articles in the collection (1) discuss the effect of massive television viewing on children in and out of the classroom; (2) examine the students' need to apply critical thinking skills to their television viewing; (3) describe activities and materials designed to develop these cognitive skills in students at all levels; and (4) list various books and organizations offering further information on television and the schools. The articles suggest that rather than being a liability, television, if intelligently used, can serve as a highly motivating tool in teaching both critical thinking skills and literature. (MM)
