Irwin, Martha; And Others
The two components of this document are: (1) a brief position paper; and (2) a related but independent bibliography of references on using computers in reading/writing instruction. The paper presents six recommendations for the intelligent use of computers in the teaching of reading and composition, discussing the guidelines of the International Reading Association, integration within the curriculum, selection of software, access to hardware and software, consultation with parents, and preparation of teachers. The bibliography lists references which may help people keep up to date with the rapid developments in technology and their applications to language arts instruction. It lists 9 journals and newsletters of professional organizations as well as 18 books dealing with issues and practical suggestions for using computers in reading/writing instruction. (SR)
