Elementary Computer Literacy. Student Activity Handbook.
Sather, Ruth; And Others
This workbook of ideas and activities is designed for use in correlation with the curriculum guide "Elementary Computer Literacy," which contains the answer key and suggestions for use. The Apple II microcomputer is used as an example, but the material is adaptable to other computer models. Varied activities provide practice in drawing, vocabulary development (crosswords, word searches, matching, short answer, flashcards), program writing, flow-chart development, and writing skills (poetry, creative writing), and include a variety of pencil and paper activities. Contents are organized according to six general topics, with a review following each section: (1) What is a computer? (2) How do computers work? (3) Student interaction with computers; (4) Beginning programming; (5) Everyday computers; and (6) History of computers. An operator's license and certificate are included for students who complete a computer operator training program. Suggestions for student-prepared bulletin boards and a glossary of computer terms complete the workbook. (LMM)
