Audiovisual methods in teaching by Edgar Dale( Book )

105 editions published between 1946 and 1969 in 3 languages and held by 1,435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a book about the use of audio-visual materials in teaching -- materials that do not depend primarily upon reading to convey their meaning. It is based upon the principle that all teaching can be greatly improved by the use of such materials because they can help make the learning experience memorable. We have said "all" teaching because audio-visual materials, when used intelligently, can promote the most effective kind of learning, in adults as well as children, in college as well as in grade school -- everywhere. - p. 3
Building a learning environment by Edgar Dale( Book )

7 editions published in 1972 in English and French and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The school curriculum should be reappraised, and new guidelines developed, establishing different levels of achievement for pupils of different abilities. The increase in the understanding of the psychology of learning is one of the great accomplishments of the last one hundred years. Some years ago it was generally believed that much of what makes us what we are was inborn, but now we know that almost all of it is learned. Easy learning is based on much first-hand experience; but the two basic learning activities--reading and discussion--are both learned from others. Discussion is learning from others who are present; reading is learning from others who are absent. The direction of the educative process involves a thorough understanding of the learning process. However, some teachers and most laymen do not yet well understand the learning process and still believe that many acquired traits are inborn. Many traits are considered inborn because they are difficult to control. This is the third monograph in a series designed to contribute to a better understanding of the educative process and its relation to human welfare. It is designed to supplement technical treatises on the educative process for schoolmen and as a popular treatise for beginning teachers, interested laymen, and parents. (Author/EA)

Educational communication in a revolutionary age by I. Keith Tyler( Book )

3 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a tribute to Dr. Edgar Dale on his retirement from Ohio State University, the papers in this book refer to "the failures of education,""the impotence of the school,""the need for sweeping change," the existence of a "systems break," and "incipient civil war," all of which are products of an age of revolution which continues today. Educational communication is explored and the need for a common rhetoric is examined. The role of media is seen as one of revelation in "the direction of increased social orientation, art and humanities, and social control of technology." Chapters include "Minds at Large in an Age of Revolution," by Robert W. Wagner; "Educational Communication in a Revolutionary Age," by Charles F. Hoban; "Revolution in Education," by Robert J. Havighurst; "It Seems to Come in Waves," by Wilbert H. Pearson; "Higher Education in the Age of Communications," by Mitoji Nishimoto; "Things to Come: The New Literacy," by Edgar Dale; "Educational Evaluation in the Revolutionary Age," by Ralph W. Tyler; "Curriculum Planning for the Revolutionary Age," by John I. Goodlad; and "Reading in the Electronic Age," by Jeanne Chall. Several of the chapters are followed by a commentary written by other notable figures, I.E., Harry A. Johnson, William Van Til, Stanley M. Elam, Albert Rosenburg, John M. Brewer, and Arthur Foshay.

The word game : improving communications by Edgar Dale( Book )

5 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet is designed to help people improve their vocabulary. Four principles of vocabulary development are outlined: language development and vocabulary development are closely related; language development is concept development; vocabulary development is an ongoing process; and vocabulary is the basis for most tests of I.Q. The author argues that vocabulary development takes place in the context of the communication triad: reading and writing, speaking and listening, and visualizing and observing. These language development skills concern all teaching and learning. Such topics are discussed as the utilization of words for communicating, sharing ideas, conceptualizing, comparing, contrasting, classifying, reading, writing, and metaphorizing. Also discussed are learning techniques; learning roots, prefixes, and suffixes; pronunciation and spelling; mispronunciation; riddles; and slang. (Ts)

Readability revisited : the new Dale-Chall readability formula by Jeanne S Chall( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Readability Revisited, Dr. Jeanne Chall and the late Dr. Edgar Dale present an introduction and historical overview of the original Dale-Chall Readability Formula, its purposes and uses over nearly five decades, and its relation to other measures of readability. The second chapter of Readability Revisited presents the new, revised Dale-Chall Readability Formula which is based on a new set of criterion passages, an updated familiar word list, and better rules for measuring the two factors of word familiarity and sentence length. The authors have also simplified the instructions and computations required to apply the formula. Three worksheets included in the book combine the revised Dale-Chall formula with assessments of the cognitive and structural elements of the written material, the characteristics of the target readers, and their purpose for reading the material. Together, these provide a new and powerful tool for assessing the reading difficulty of written materials
The living word vocabulary : the words we know : a national vocabulary inventory by Edgar Dale( Book )

8 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This word list includes more than 43,000 items, each identified by a simple word meaning. For each item, the list provides a grade level (4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 13, or 16) and a percentage score that indicates what percentage of students at that grade level understand the word. Each word-familiarity score was obtained by administering a three-choice test to students from schools and colleges throughout the United States. An appendix discusses the three-choice test as a validating instrument. (Gw)
