Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 22, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Multiple units the new thing in the movie business Mini-theatre part of a film revolution Wedneidoy, Soplcmbor 22, 1971 THE LETHBRIDCE HERALD 41 Japanese government launches urgent talks By GENE HANDSAKER HOLLYWOOD (AP) Mom sells the tickets. Pop lakes the tickets and sells the popcorn, Automation stops the intermis- sion music, dims the house lights, open the curtain and starts the movie. That's a mini-theatre, part of a revolution that's returning film iUi nickelodeon- sized beginnings 60 years ago. Often top, Tour or six audito- riums seating perhaps 100 to 400 people each are under one roof, sharing a common box office, refreshment stand and projec- tion booth. The Capri Theatre in Dallas has seven screens and has tri- pled mid-week attendance by the variety of its offerings, eluding double features, a cus- tomer recently could have cho- sen among 10 films ranging from Myra Breckinridge to Pat- ton. Of 413 indoor theatres built last year, the trade magazine Boxoffice reports, 210 were mul- ti-auditorium types. Several big New Ybrk City theatres have been remodeled as multiple units. HUNS FOUP MOVIES Like department stores, movie houses have followed the population into the suburbs and (heir shopping centres, where New method for teaching MONTREAL (CP) "We used to take slow kids and have them wash the black- boards: now we're trying to teach said Paul Right. That's wiry Paul, an clc- jnentaiy school principal from the Eastern Townships, at- tended the McGill University summer program in special education. He ano 239 other teachers were learning new ways of teaching children who have learning problems. One of the methods used was playing games Not just any game, but games that represent learning situa- tions with rules not unlike those of Ihe real world, in- volving risks and skills. The idea is that children who do not learn from regular teaching methods can be helped to leara and achieve when taught in a more crea- tive way. Prof, Howard Strutt, who is in charge of the McGill spe- cial education program, out- lined one of the methods used lo modify the behavior of a hyperactive child. "If, for example, tire child runs around kicking other stu- dents, the teacher won't pun- ish him or force him to stop immediately but Iries to gel the child to stop by degrees. ]r other words, every time lie shows good behavior, he is re- warded by candy and praise. The reward gradually be- comes less tangible until he shows good behavior without promise of a reward Prof. Strutt said teachers learning the new methods get more than classroom experi- ence. They are sent to work in local hospitals and various learning centres and go on special field trips lo observe and learn from aulhorilies- He said there is a growing need for these teachers with special knowledge of the ex- ceptional child. John Worland, a special ed- ucation teacher from Dcnnox- ville, Que., look the summer course to understand why so many students can't learn. "This course is a revelation lo he said. "I realize now that the problems of slow learners are much more com- plex than I ever imagined." BETTER EQUIPPED Pauline Ryan from New- foundland, who teaches spe- cial education, had little train- ing in the field. She was sent to the course by her school board and "now I feel I'm better equipped to cope with the problems that arise in my classroom." Many of the teachers, like Pauline, had little or no train- in C in the field although they were teaching special educa- tion. New regulations now re- quire them to be qualified. The McGill summer pro- gram offered two levels of diploma course and a master's degree. It was directed lo Ihe needs of all teachers teaching chil- dren with learning problems. The program offers courses in special methods, behavior problems and psychology of the exceptional child. Other similar programs hav been set up around the province. The teachers in the course came from many park of Quebec and the Marilimes, some years of leaching experience, some new lo the job, but all linked by a desire lo help the exceplional child lo achieve. By playing games of skill, risk and not unlike Ihose in the real teachers hoped to deal with real-life problems of slow-learners in the class- ronm. They placed themselves in a learning experience, new and possibly challenging, sim- ilar lo a child learning some- thing new in class. That experience showed many that children who can- not learn in "regular" ways may produce when taught cre- atively. Clive Rose, a teacher of emotionally-disturbed children in nearby Laval, said: "We used lo exclude or sup- press slow-learners in the classroom. These courses are showing me how lo under- stand children with learning problems and lo cope with the needs of the individual child."
