Twelve Years in the Making, and Worth the Wait! 
The long-awaited release of the 2nd Edition of
Television Production: A Classroom Approach
Libraries Unlimited          Release date: September 3, 2004

Here is the complete revision of the book that started it all!

Twelve years ago, Keith and Chris were teaching high school TV Production classes, grinding-out lesson plans, and designing video projects for their students.  The result was the classic Television Production: A Classroom Approach, which has become the standard by which other TV texts are measured.  Now, with more than 35 years combined TV teaching experience under their belts, Keith and Chris release the 2nd edition of their all-time bestseller. 

Television Production: A Classroom Approach includes an instructor edition and a student edition.   Each chapter in the student edition features: learning objectives, vocabulary, topic discussion, review questions, student project plan, evaluation sheets and extension activities. The teacher's edition contains all of this plus: instructional notes to the teacher, answer sheets, instructional ideas and evaluation notes. Chapter topics include audio and video equipment use, project planning instruction, newsgathering methodology, nonlinear editing, studio production and movie production.
