The 1986 Educational Software Preview Guide.
Lathrop, Ann, Ed.
This guide lists favorably reviewed microcomputer software for K-12 student instruction. It is not intended for use as a buying guide, but as an aid to educators in locating commercially available software they may want to preview to determine its suitability for their instructional program and students. Each annual edition of this guide is an independent publication and includes titles from earlier editions only if they meet the criteria established for the current year. Individual programs are listed alphabetically by title within a curriculum area, and each listing includes the publisher, microcomputers the program can be used with, instructional mode, grade level, and price. The 20 areas represented are art, business education, computers, electronic periodicals, foreign language, home economics/living skills, health, instructional tools, keyboarding, language arts/English, library media skills, mathematics, music, preschool/early childhood, problem solving/logic, science, special needs/physically handicapped, social studies, testing, and vocational education/industrial arts. The guide also includes a list of consortium member institutions; a key to the abbreviations used; an alphabetical listing of software titles with the name of the publisher, microcomputer, curriculum area, and price; and a directory of publishers represented in the guide.
