Computers in English/Language Arts. Teaching Resources in the ERIC Database (TRIED) Series.
Designed to tap the rich collection of instructional techniques in the ERIC database, this compilation of lesson plans offers practical suggestions for incorporating computers into the English/language arts classroom at both the elementary and secondary level. Because many teachers and administrators are using computers for the first time, the first section of the TRIED offers guidelines on the sequential organization of word-processing skills, software selection, class organization, desktop publishing, and a variety of other considerations for the effective integration of computers into the instructional program. The second section of the TRIED provides lessons using the computer in elementary language arts classes. The final section of the TRIED offers lessons for English teachers to use with their computer resources. A 47-item annotated bibliography of related resources in the ERIC database is attached. (RS)
