The English Classroom in the Computer Age: Thirty Lesson Plans.
Wresch, William, Ed.
Written by middle school, high school, and college writing teachers, the 30 lesson plans collected in this book represent a mix of computer-based units for teaching writing. They cover many types of writing from journalism to literary essays, fiction, and poetry, and many aspects of the writing process, from brainstorming for ideas to prewriting warm-ups, electronic library research, revision, and desktop publishing. Most of the lessons in the book are adaptations of lessons used for years without computers; a small number of lesson plans in the book represent wholly new activities. The lessons in the book follow a set format designed to help readers quickly find out which activities are most appropriate for them, and are divided into categories for students with little, moderate, or substantial computer experience. (A directory of software and a list of contributors are attached.) (RS)
