Kyker, Keith; Curchy, Christopher
This text serves as a guide covering basic aspects of television production leading to complete production of video yearbooks and news shows. Each lesson is divided into eight sections: (1) objectives; (2) vocabulary; (3) lesson text, which encourages production related ideas on practical application as well as theory; (4) review questions; (5) activities; (6) a project plan; (7) a project evaluation sheet; and (8) notes to the teacher. Early projects are described in precise detail, later projects leave room for student and teacher interpretation.
