Teaching In The Television Culture

Literal Comprehension: When English teacher learn that their students were born in the house where the television was always on and when they consider TV at the park, they become worried about their students. They like an anti-TV tale in which the main character Lennie, addicted to TV, later things that TV people are not real. At the beginning of the TV era (age), many critics thought that TV was responsible for lowering the quality of students and people in a generation. They supposed that people would be less educated after a decade (10 years time) or so. The critics did not support when TV was used for educational purpose. In reality, today’s students were brought up with TV which plays an important role in their lives. Actually, TV does not cause addiction. The viewers are not concentrated in one particular program. There are commercial and TV serials being broadcast alternately. With the remote control, many stations can be viewed alternately. Moreover, there is an interaction between the real world and the TV world. A viewer is a traveler, who goes from one world to another. Homework and TV can be handled at the same time.

Interpretation: This essay might be trying to tell us that TV is not as harmful as people in the past considered it to be. It has become a part of modern life. This assay has also presented a new theory of perception (learn, knowledge) which stressed that it is possible to group so many things at the same time from various sources.

Critical Thinking: This essay has presented the modern situation realistically. It has put forward the idea of the past generation, who considered TV harmful and later on it has beautifully presented a new approach of perception. Whenever we learn we can get so many things from different sources. It is possible to write a letter and to watch the news on the TV at the same time.

Assimilation: When I read this essay I understood how some of my friends solve their math’s problem when their radio is on. They can do both things at the same time. Perhaps the modern generation is smarter than the earlier generation. They grasp whatever they need from various sources.
