Listening to Children: Soviet and American Voices.
Burt, Lucile; Snow, Roberta
This guide explains how and why the videotapes, "There's a Nuclear War Going On Inside Me" and "What Soviet Children Are Saying about Nuclear Weapons," were made and provides background information and activities that will aid in using the tapes. Chapters I and III contain interviews with producers of the videotapes. Topics are how children were selected and prepared for the taping, how questions were posed, how editing was done, and, in the case of the Soviet children, how the investigators gained access to the children and what, if any, restrictions were imposed. Chapters II and IV are transcripts of the video tapes. Chapter V provides activities that allow young people and adults to join in the on-going study about how children everywhere are affected by living in the nuclear age. Some activities encourage local research about the attitudes of children; others help raise the question of what role schools and families might play in educating about nuclear weapons and understanding other cultures. Chapter VI provides the names and addresses of four people who have used the videotapes and have agreed to share their experience with others. (IS)
