LOGO in the Classroom.
The Computing Teacher, Sep 1983-Mar 1985
This collection of articles and features reprinted from "The Computing Teacher" begins with an outline (the table of contents) of a 20-session course, "Logo in the Classroom," by Shirley Torgerson, Mary Kay Kriley, and Janet Stone. The text of the first session and a student exercise sheet are also provided. Five articles included in the collection are (1) "Logo Today: Vision or Reality" (Uri Leron); (2) "Animation with MIT Logo" (Nancy Parks Sopp); (3) "Helping Students with Recursion: Teaching Strategies" (Tim Riordan); (4) "Turtle Fever" (Rick Billstein); and (5) "Putting Logo to Work" (Hillel Weintraub). Copies of a regular feature, "The Logo Center," are also included. These columns by Kathleen Martin and Tim Riordan address such topics as spirolaterals, adventure stories, tangrams and turtles, databases, polyspirals, sprites, thinking in "chunks," non-graphics applications, and using older students to help teach Logo to younger children. One guest column by Tim Barclay focuses on teaching mathematics with MIT Logo. (JB)
