Microcomputer Use in a Developmental Writing Course. Microcomputing Working Papers Series.
Identifying types of available courseware, examining potentially useful items, and generating ideas about directions composition instructors at Drexel University might take in adapting quality software for the Macintosh and designing courseware for their specific educational needs are the identified goals in Part I of this Report entitled "A Project to Investigate Possibilities for Microcomputer Use in a Developmental Writing Course." This part covers work in the fall quarter of 1983, which included training in microcomputer use, review of software used in basic writing courses at other universities, consultation with the Drexel Instructional Support Group, and research at the Drexel Software Review Center and the Drexel Library. Part II of this report focuses on work during the winter quarter of 1984, records six observations about microcomputer use in basic writing, and suggests nine uses for computers in R900, a developmental writing course. Attachments include an introduction and overview regarding the staffing and teaching of R900, a sample syllabus for R900, and a course description. (DF)
