Film Number:AMY 251
Other titles:INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUE PART 2: THE PRACTICAL LESSON [Main Title]
INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNIQUE PART 3: USE OF VISUAL AIDS [Main Title]
Summary: Three Air Ministry instructional films which examine the nature of instructional technique itself.
Description: I. "The Classroom Lesson". Three instructors, of various degrees of proficiency, are shown conducting lessons. Their faults and good points are shown, but not tabulated: instead, the viewer is invited to look to himself for comparison.
II. "The Practical Lesson". Examination of the techniques required for the teaching of a manual skill, with the emphasis on demonstration and practical work by the class. Good and bad points are presented but not tabulated.
III. "Use of Visual Aids". Film whose aim is to provoke thought with a view to stimulating the use of visual aids in instruction. It discusses and illustrates methods of learning, using a mock courtroom procedure to put across facts in a somewhat surreal setting.
