The Computer and the Teacher of English.
Poteet, G. Howard
New Jersey English Leaflet, v29 n1 p3-6 Spr 1968
Computer assisted instruction deserves serious consideration by the English teacher as a potential contributor to teaching and learning. As a supplement to the teacher, the computer can serve students as a personal tutor. It is no more inhuman than books or recordings, although, like them, it cannot adequately respond to the problems of disturbed, playful, or hostile students. The computer might be used to improve students' reading skills, to aid them in using a variety of sentence patterns in composition, and to provide practice in conventions of standard English. Some potential uses for teachers are in ordering and cataloging instructional materials, surveying student interests, and studying program effectiveness for college or business preparation.
