Laser Disc Technology: A Visual Approach to Reading. Final Report.
TIU Adult Education and Job Training Center, Lewistown, PA.
A project developed a planned course of study using laser disc software to enhance social studies, science, and literature and the arts in Adult Basic Education (ABE)/General Educational Development (GED) reading classes. During the first part of the project, laser disc software was reviewed to ascertain what material was compatible with the ABE/GED reading curriculum used in the classes. During the second part, the laser disc software that complimented the reading materials was used with 25 ABE/GED students. The instructional approach to using the materials offered two basic options: to review reading passages and then view the corresponding material on the laser disc software or to use the laser disc software concurrently with the reading passages. Pre- and posttests were administered to allow comparison of these students with those taught with traditional methods. Students responses were positive. Appendixes to the 22-page report include the following: pre- and postprogram questionnaire with student responses; lesson plans for six laser disc units on biology, earth science (two units), geography, chemistry/physics, and political science; and a listing of supplemental reading and exercises for the units.
