Designed to provide K-12 teachers in Oregon with a scope and sequence, a listing of resources, and a large collection of ready-to-use activities for teaching computer literacy, this handbook is divided into nine sections which contain computer literacy instruction keyed to behavioral objectives. Topics covered include: (1) the history of computing; (2) career opportunities directly and indirectly related to computers; (3) the use of computers at home, school, and work; (4) current limitations and future uses of computers; (5) a vocabulary of common computer terms; (6) the structure and function of computer systems; (7) the care and operation of computer equipment and storage media; (8) program generation and usage; and (9) the moral and ethical implications of computer technology. The activities are coded to match the goals in the scope and sequence, and applicable grade levels are indicated. Each activity is prefaced with a description that indicates: the title of the activity, the objective the activity falls under, the grade level or levels to which the activity applies, a description of the activity, materials needed, and additional resources, including suggested answers, cross references to related materials, and sources for more information.
