Using CAI to Teach Vocabulary Concepts.
Block, Karen K.; McCaslin, Ellen S.
A project dealing with the development of computer-assisted instructional materials to teach new vocabulary words to college students is discussed in this paper. Seven different instructional modules for teaching new words are being developed at the University of Pittsburgh; they are entitled: define, word relations, classify, words in context, create, word line, and equivalents. The first three modules are discussed at some length in the paper and computer exercise routines are given. The remaining four modules are sketched briefly along with a summary of computer techniques. The research design, still in process at the time of writing, is described. The experimenters expect that there will be both specific and indirect methods effects in their program of vocabulary instruction. Several computer exercise routines are included. (JF)
