Crime Prevention for Children between the Ages of Six and Twelve: Designing Video Messages To Help Change Behavior.
Biggar, Sandra D.
An early childhood educator, serving on the board of a foundation with a nationwide focus on crime prevention among children, implemented a practicum intervention designed to provide crime prevention videotapes for viewing by 6- to 12-year-olds in a high-crime urban area. The general goals of the practicum were to institute a method to develop crime prevention attitudes among children, create appropriate crime prevention messages, and identify aspects of technology and production that would hold a child's attention. Two public service announcement videotapes were made, tested with an audience of children similar to those in the target group, and sent to a local television studio for final editing before being broadcast. Appendices provide a transcript of an interview with the founders of the foundation, a public service announcement evaluation instrument, a proposal requesting a grant of video production funds, sketches of animated figures, and story boards of video and audio tracks of the announcements.
