A Principals Guide to Instructional Television in the Classroom.
Nebraska State Dept. of Education, Lincoln. Div. of School Assistance & Support.
This resource guide is designed to help principals acquaint themselves and their teachers with instructional television (ITV) programming and to assist in the supervision of ITV use to obtain the optimum educational value for students. A brief introduction presents a rationale for the educational use of television and describes the Nebraska State Instructional Television Services Department. A checklist is provided for use in evaluating the overall system for use of ITV in a school before addressing the validity of ITV use by individual teachers. The title, class level, and a brief description are presented for each of 118 general ITV on-air programs which are available to teachers through the Nebraska system. Additional programs are also listed in eight categories: (1) foreign language; (2) guidance; (3) language arts; (4) physical education; (5) science; (6) social studies; (7) teacher inservice; and (8) vocational education. Suggestions are provided for successful classroom implementation of instructional television, and ITV Services support materials are outlined. An ITV evaluation checklist, a model for using instructional television, a diagram of the relationship of ITV to instructional skills, and copies of four different types of ITV program request forms complete the document.
