The Computer Connection: Putting Computers to Work in the High School Publications Program.
Benedict, Mary
Designed specifically for high school publications advisers who are seeking advice on how to use typesetters, editing terminals, personal computers, and printers in their publications work, this guidebook shares the experiences and advice of other high school advisers who are now using computers for newspapers, yearbooks, and magazines. Each case study presented in the guide includes a profile on the school, a review of the type of equipment used and how it is used for the publications, a brief commentary on the results, and advice to other advisers. The case studies are divided into six groups: (1) working with typesetting equipment; (2) a system's approach to computer use; (3) working with the professional press; (4) working with microcomputers; (5) yearbook production and computers; and (6) choosing your own software. A summary chapter provides a course of action for those about to add computers in some form to their operations. (HOD)
