The Effects of TV on Speech Education
Gocen, Gokcen; Okur, Alpaslan
Educational Research and Reviews, v8 n2 p63-68 Jan 2013
Generally, the speaking aspect is not properly debated when discussing the positive and negative effects of television (TV), especially on children. So, to highlight this point, this study was first initialized by asking the question: "What are the effects of TV on speech?" and secondly, to transform the effects that TV has on speech in a utilizable manner, "How can we utilize TV in speech education?". The required data were collected through a survey with the middle school students involved in the sample. Students who argued that TV "does not" corrupt their speech are in the opinion that they imitate how people speak on TV and think that figures they see on TV actually speak well, teaching them how to speak well also, and that TV expands their vocabulary, helping them to express themselves more easily. According to this result, "TV language" should set an example for that matter. (Contains 7 tables.)
