Ideas for Integrating the Microcomputer with Instruction.
Podany, Zita
This report focuses on the integration of computers in elementary and middle school instruction. Based on interviews and on-site visitations with teachers using computers in conjunction with their regular instruction, seven lessons are described: (1) desktop publishing for grades 4 and 5; (2) interpretive writing for any grade level; (3) student-authored word problems for grades 6, 7, and 8; (4) long-distance telecommunications for grades 3 and up; (5) teaching students how to learn for grades 4 and 5; (6) nutrition for grades 6, 7 and 8; and (7) mapping the Western Hemisphere for grades 5 and 6. Included for each lesson are a narrative description and lesson plan which outlines target audience, hardware, software, instructional purpose, objectives, pre-activities, computer activities, follow-up activities, time required, schedule, management suggestions, instructional materials, and teacher preparation. For some lessons, examples of student work and other ideas are also provided. A directory of producers of software mentioned in the report is attached. (MES)
