Computers in the English Literature Classroom.
Lipton, Arlene, Ed.; And Others
This manual provides a relevant resource for English literature teachers who wish to take advantage of the extensive library of computer software materials available to expand and strengthen classroom instruction, as well as use alternative methodology. The manual presents selected lesson plans which facilitate the integration of computer-based instruction with the regular methods practiced by teachers. These plans not only indicate the features of the software, but also represent a sharing of ideas on its applications by teachers who have had successful experiences with computers and enriching concepts and skills in the literature classroom. The lessons in the manual (structured around the elements of the short story, the novel, plays, and tales, myths, and fables) are intended as a reference and guide, not as a sequential course. Appendixes contain information about software duplication guidelines, copying public domain disks for MS Dos and Apple computers, and lists of software and literary works used in this manual. (KEH)
