ABSTRACT
The article discusses the effectivity of teaching reading through television. A study initiated by the Reading Center of the Pennsylvania State University which was designed specifically to examine the effectiveness of a series of televised programs on reading instruction in the elementary school. The concept of the reading instruction revolves around the teacher-student interactions which forms the nucleus of the reading program. The responsibilities of the teacher who conducts such reading program should: (1) provide a great variety of reading materials; (2) guide students in their choices as well as to leave them essentially free to make their own selections; (3) evaluate progress, assess difficulties, and provide necessary remedial assistance; and (4) provide the child with experiences which will aid him in integrating reading experiences with his own life experiences. The author concludes that the use of television in reading education is beneficial to students but the full extent of its value is still to be substantiated.
