This study attempts to develop a model for the use of educational television as a primary school class audiovisual teaching aid in Baghdad. The basic underlying idea is that T.V. can present a much needed audio-visual dimension in the classroom, without using a T.V. presenter and commentary, which are replaced ,by the classroom teacher with a prepared commentary, and who should discuss it with his pupils even during transmission. Thus, T.V. then becomes a purely audio-visual teaching aid capable of providing, two-way communication. In order to obtain basic data the investigator carried out the following: (1) A survey using a questionnaire was designed to gather data on the current availability of audio-visual teaching aids and the extent of their use in 40 Baghdad primary schools. This was given to 285 teachers. (2) The construction and application of an attitude scale using the method of equal-appearing intervals, to determine teachers' attitudes towards the use of T.V. in classroom teaching on a sample of 150 primary school teachers who had used T.V. in classroom teaching, and 150 primary school teachers who had not. Answers to the questionnaire revealed that the primary schools investigated showed a great lack of audio-visual teaching aids, that teachers had had to make greater use of such aids, and that Iraqi teachers had accepted T.V. as an instrument for classroom teaching. With regard to the primary teachers' attitudes towards T.V., it was found that years of service and experience in using educational television had contributed positively towards teachers' attitudes regarding the medium, meanwhile sex of teachers did not. The model was designed to meet the needs of the school teaching visualization and the particular requirements of teaching the following subjects: Geography, Mathematics, History, and General Sciences.
