Teaming the Classroom Computer with a Textbook for Teaching Phonics to Hearing-Impaired Students.
The paper describes an approach to teaching phonics to hearing impaired 12-15 year olds through a microcomputer. Under the guidance of a teacher, a standard phonics textbook is paired with phonetic and phonologic practice on the computer. Students proceed through the materials at their own pace. Three phases of learning are featured: (1) exposure to words via pictures from the textbook; (2) participation in computer exercises; and (3) interaction with specially designed crossword puzzles designed to reinforce proper spelling, contextual meaning, word association, and recall. Step by step procedures are described and computer screens pictured. Benefits of the approach, such as increased interest and learning pace are noted. (CL)
