Gaffney, Maureen, Ed.
Young Viewers/Film Review Supplement, v1 n2 Win 1980
Designed for media specialists and educators, this issue reviews 19 short films produced between 1956 and 1978. Films range from 2 to 24 minutes in length and include both verbal and nonverbal live-action and animation films. Although most of the films are aimed at elementary-aged children, a few are also suitable for teenagers and adults. The reviews provide synopses of the films, reactions of children during field testing of the films, and recommendations concerning ages and programs the films might be best suited for. The films included in this supplement are screened to eliminate those that are patently sexist, racist, ageist, condescending, or unnecessarily violent. In addition, a sample copy of the evaluation tool used to document children's responses to the films is included. (LH)
