Creative Programming for Young Minds...on the TRS-80. I-Volume VII and All Stars Programs.
Brown, Devin
These manuals provide self-teaching and individualized instruction activities to assist students in learning BASIC programming. Originally planned as a mathematics enrichment program for academically gifted children, three series of instructional workbooks and supplementary projects for seven microcomputers are now included to accommodate elementary, junior high, senior high, and adult students. The manuals are organized around five phases: (1) instructions, examples, exercises and recall experiences for learning commands and their logical organization; (2) mini-challenges which require sequential organization, creativity and logical thinking; (3) games; (4) All-Stars books which involve a higher level of understanding and applications related to real life; and (5) an open phase for students to create their own projects. Programming manuals are for use with the TRS-80, PET, APPLE, TI 99/41, VIC 20, Atari, and NEC microcomputers. Computer Related Enriched and Technologically Inspired Viable Education (CREATIVE) also publishes a monthly newsletter as a forum for student works, and offers workshops and consulting services for teachers and administrators.
