Curriculum Guide for Computer Writing.
DiMillo, Jane Burke
This curriculum guide provides instructional materials for an 8-week course to enable students to see themselves as computer users and writers and to encourage them to take an active rather than a passive role. For each pair of weeks, this information is provided: goal, objective(s), tools, and actions (descriptions of activities for teachers and/or students). The objective for Weeks 1-2 is to learn how to use a computer and word processing program to express thoughts, feelings, and experiences. A list of terms is provided. The objectives for Weeks 3-4 are as follows: use a computer and word processing program to express thoughts, feelings, experiences, and reactions to other writers; and examine, discuss, and think about what "we have written about our past and present experiences." The objectives for Weeks 5-6 are as follows: use a computer and word processing program to express thoughts, feelings, and experiences; examine, discuss, and think about what "we have written about our past and present experiences"; and learn how to listen to "our own and others' writing." Weeks 7-8 objectives are as follows: use a computer and word processing program to express thoughts, feelings, and experiences; examine and discuss what other writers have written about their past experiences and the experiences of others; and help students see literature as part of a whole. Two appendixes contain writings by students and handouts. (YLB)
