Title:
A COMPARISON OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE PLANETARIUM AND THE CLASSROOM CHALKBOARD AND CELESTIAL GLOBE IN THE TEACHING OF SPECIFIC ASTRONOMICAL CONCEPTS
Authors:
Reed, George
Abstract:
Statement of Research Problem: The formal research problem was: Is the planetarium a more effective teaching device than a combination of the classroom chalkboard and celestial globe In the teaching of selected astronomical concepts in terms of the immediate attainment and retention of specified cognitive behavioral objectives and the attainment of specified affective behavioral objectives? The planetarium teaching situation was compared to the classroom chalkboard and celestial globe teaching situation in the teaching of selected astronomical concepts. The classroom chalkboard and celestial globe teaching situation was chosen for comparison because it represented a standard adequately equipped teaching situation for the astronomical concepts involved. The astronomical concepts are the diurnal and yearly motions of stars, the?superlor planets and the sun, and the celestial sphere and precession. The behavioral objectives are stated in a discussion of the evaluation instrument.
