Computer-Based Sentence-Combining Instruction. Final Report.
Southwest Regional Laboratory for Educational Research and Development, Los Alamitos, CA.
As part of a larger investigation into the use of microcomputers in composition instruction, this report focuses on one instructional technique--sentence combining. Consisting of four parts, the report first provides the courseware and operating manual developed from the project. The second part includes specifications for instruction and content. Part three describes the computer programming and includes a list of the computer programs designed for the Apple II or Apple II Plus computer, with 48 K of memory, a disk drive, and a Mountain Hardware Appleclock card. The fourth part describes pilot studies conducted with the sentence-combining instruction. Five appendixes provide a discussion of microcomputer use in composition, a discussion of the use of computers in English instruction, a description of how sentence combining would fit into a larger computer based composition program (SWRL-TN-2-82/36), methods for evaluating textual responses, and a sequence for sentence combining instruction (SWRL-TN-2-82/25).
