Effects of English CBI at Doshisha University.
Kitao, Kenji
A teacher of English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) reading courses at Doshisha University (Japan) describes classroom techniques and activities involving use of the computer and assesses the benefits, difficulties, and instructional results. Data are drawn from two ESL classes using computer-based instruction (CBI) offered in 1 year. The primary course objective was that students be able to read English passages without translating them into Japanese. The report describes the course's organization for each of two semesters and the adjustments made by the teacher as the result of attending a summer course on computer-assisted instruction between the semesters. Descriptions of course activities include the orientation provided to students and the class activities, exercises, and assignments. Typing skills were taught in the first semester so students could use computers comfortably for exercises and assignments. Overall results of the first semester are also discussed, including attendance, student work rate, test scores, performance patterns on class exercises, and problem areas in student comprehension and performance. A brief bibliography is included. (MSE)
