This guide, resulting from a four-site middle school study of the use of computers and related technology in second language instruction, is presented for the use by middle school language teachers. The guide includes lessons, coded to the state teacher handbook for second language instruction, and management hints, sample lesson plans, and other resources. Introductory material includes an overview of the project, a list of project sites, and lists of individuals and software that may be useful resources for classroom teachers. A lesson plan template is also included. Sample lesson plans consist of software lessons for word processing in both French and Spanish courses, for language study in both French and Spanish, and for creative activities, including educational games and word processing utilities. The lesson plans are tied to specific, generally-available computer programs, and contain illustrations of computer screens contained in the programs. An instructional telecommunications network, available to educators in North Carolina, is also described. Suggestions and directions for classroom use of the electronic mail capabilities are offered. An appendix contains illustrated instructions for adapting a television and videocassette recorder for use as a computer monitor. (MSE)
