Computers in the Spanish Classroom.

This guide to the use of computer software in Spanish second language instruction contains a series of lesson plans based in part on software content. The topics covered by the lesson plans are common to Spanish level 1 and 2 courses, and are intended not as a sequential course but as a reference for teachers. All lessons involve computer use and are review lessons, designed to facilitate integration of computer-based instruction with instructor methods. Each plan indicates the features of the software used and suggests applications previously found to be effective. Each lesson plan also includes an application of the word processor in addition to the use of commercial software. An introductory section reviews classroom procedures for computer and software use. Lesson plans are organized by these topics: verbs, vocabulary, structures and forms, and the use of database, spreadsheet, and word processor software for special projects. Appended materials include software duplication guidelines, diskette care guidelines, a list of the computer Technical Assistance Centers in each of New York's five boroughs, and a list of software used in the lesson plans.
