Editor in Chief, Level C-1: Grammar Disasters and Punctuation Faux Pas. [Diskette.]
Baker, M.; Block, C.; Borla, L.; Dietrich, G.; Hockett, M.; Holly, Thad
Providing grade 8 to adult students with practice and reinforcement in editing for capitalization, grammar, spelling, vocabulary, usage, and content, this computer software program contains over 30 written accounts that have been sequenced from easier to more difficult. The program has 3 levels of play: beginning, intermediate, and advanced. At each level of the program, users must find all the grammar, punctuation, and usage errors in each story. At the intermediate and advanced levels of the program, users must also edit each story for content errors so that it agrees with its illustration and caption. To correct a story in the program, the user highlights an error and finds the rule that has been broken; after the user selects the correct rule, the computer automatically corrects the error. When all errors have been fixed, users of the program may play a reward game. The computer program emphasizes critical thinking in conjunction with learning and reinforcement of the rules of English usage, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, spelling, and vocabulary. (RS)
