Computer Software for Scholastic Journalism.
Oates, Rita Haugh
Four commercially available instructional software programs for high school journalism students are examined in this paper, which also contains suggestions on their use. The four programs reviewed in the paper provide (1) practice in finding the best interview sources in a newsgathering simulation (Super Scoop); (2) review and reinforcement of grammar skills in a news-editorial game setting (The Grammar Examiner); (3) use of a utility program--a tool--to create computer graphics and actual layouts of 8 1/2 x 11- or 8 1/2 x 14-inch pages (The Newsroom); and (4) review of general knowledge in areas such as American history, government, and literature in a game format (Knowledge Master series).
