Television instruction in Washington county, md. Schools began in September 1956 and has continued as an integral part of the instructional program. Early in the project it became evident that the important issue was not whether television should be used for direct instruction, but how it should be used and what it could contribute to the improvement of instruction. As a result, curriculum is continually being revised and extended, teaching procedures studied and achievement evaluated. Instructional television is regarded as a valuable addition to the school program and not as a "substitute." television has been accepted as an important educational resource. Instructional television is a regular part of the school program and is now being used on an even broader scale than before. School staffs feel that instruction has been strengthened, pupil educational opportunity has been broadened, and achievement improved. Lessons have been given in mathematics, the arithmetic program, arithmetic and reading, general mathematics, algebra, plane geometry, advanced mathematics, science, U.S. History, 12th grade English, art and music, conversational french and core (correlated social studies, language arts and English). Achievement gains shown during the testing program are not attributed wholly to television "per se," but it is believed that television contributed to an overall situation that made growth possible. Since the beginning of the television program, parents have taken a greater interest than formerly in the school program and in the progress of their children. It is felt that television focused attention on problems in a way never before possible, that it stimulated teamwork and planning, that it created interest in curriculum development and teaching procedures, and that it required pupils to assume more responsibility.
