Chaos on Sesame Street: Does This Carnival of Images Help Students Read?
Healy, Jane M.
American Educator: The Professional Journal of the American Federation of Teachers, v14 n4 p22-27,39 Win 1990
The rapid, disjointed, and vivid style of Sesame Street may impede rather than promote progress toward literacy and the development of voluntary attention. It robs children of the ability to create mental pictures. Contends that it is a failure as an instructional medium. (DM)
