Alternatives to Automated Learning.
Brannon, Lil; Harris, Jeanette
Writing laboratories in colleges across the United States have encountered problems when offering individualized instruction: too often the students work in isolation with materials that are inadequate or inappropriate. This paper suggests, as a remedy to this situation that tutors be made available to the students whenever the writing lab is open and that the teachers/tutors themselves develop the writing lab's resource materials instead of using outside, or commerical, materials. An inservice workshop that prepares the teachers as tutors is described, emphasizing that tutors should "teach to the concept and not to the error." Six transparencies used in the workshop show teachers that developing instructional materials is a process similar to actually learning the material's underlying concepts. (RL)
