A Revised Critical Schema for Planning and Selecting Print and Non-print Media for Socially Diverse Classroom Environments.
Swartz, James D.
Focusing on suggestions about selecting media for use by teachers, this paper summarizes a follow-up qualitative research study on a seventh grade teacher's approach to the selection of print and non-print media and presents a revised critical schema for such selection. The paper notes that the follow-up study indicated that the expression of student views related to media entered into the teacher's deliberative process and significantly changed the critical schema already developed based on the initial study of a third-grade teacher. The schema featured in the paper is based on the type of selection decisions made by the seventh-grade science teacher and how his decisions compared and contrasted with those of other teachers and students who were interviewed. The paper concludes that teachers should have access to the value-laden, critical position of the producers of media to assist them in making context-related decisions about the selection of media.
