Some Ideas for Wordprocessing in Special Education.
Suffolk County Board of Cooperative Educational Services 2, Patchogue, NY.
This guide provides a collection of ideas for word processing activities that teachers have found to be useful in special education classes. The guide begins with a list of 41 computer skills, the grade levels at which the skills are usually introduced (from kindergarten to secondary levels), and provides names of commercial programs which may be useful in teaching the skills. The list is cross-referenced to a subsequent section of activities. Activities in the areas of keyboard familiarity, sentence writing, paragraph and story writing, fun skills, editing, and creative composition are briefly described. The guide concludes with a directory containing descriptions and addresses of the commercial word processing programs mentioned. (JDD)
