This is more than an annotated bibliography. It offers information to teachers and instructors in many subject areas including mathematics, science (interfacing microcomputer software for science laboratories), English as a second language, oral communication, keyboarding (software), writing, basic skills, test taking skills, vocational education, reading, and social studies. The summaries fall into two categories: (1) abstracts of opinion papers that provide advice and instructional tips for the classroom; and (2) descriptions of program models or products developed in response to a stated problem. Summaries falling into the first category contain a problem statement and a short discussion of some of the solutions to that problem. Summaries in the second category contain a problem statement, a discussion of the research conducted, a brief explanation of the conclusions reached, and a description of the program or product developed. A product order form is attached. (DB)
