Future teachers at East Texas
State College observe teaching
methods via a closed circuit tele-
vision system. The system was
established to ease the problem of
overcrowding the classrooms of
the local elementary schools with
In the past, education students
had to visit the school in order to
observe the teaching methods.
However, the education cjassea
at East Texas have outgrown this
method of observation. Several
rooms of the elementary schools
have been wired for telecasting,
giving a selection of grade levels
to observe. Only authorized per-
sons are allowed in the classroom
during a telecast, in order to pre-
vent the education students from
getting confused. Dr. Betty John-
son, head of trie education depart-
ment, keeps in constant contact
with the student operators at the
school. Contact is kept by way of
an intercommuications system.
The television signal comes
from day school by way of a
specially designed cable. The sign-
al is received in an audio-visual
jstudio, and from there is sent to
the various observation rooms.
