Guide to Software Selection Resources: Part Three. Reading and Communication Skills.
Third in a series, this loose-leaf guide reviews resources for evaluating, selecting, and using software for teaching reading and communication skills. Sources of educational software listed include both commercial publishers and public domain sources. Software selection information sources are divided into journals, newsletters, and special publications; information clearinghouses; and human resources. Automated information clearinghouses are also listed. A checklist (originally prepared by the National Council of Teachers of English Committee on Instructional Technology) contains descriptive, application, and evaluative criteria for use with language arts and general purpose software. Evaluation criteria related to reading and communication skills are discussed, and a section on software application reviews some educational principles and practices related to integrating software with the teaching of English, reading, and writing. A brief discussion summarizes research findings on the effectiveness of computer assisted instruction. Twenty-three references are listed. (LMM)
