Direct Teacher Response through Computer-Assisted Modeling: The Example of Introducing Academic Discourse.
Bridger, M. Ann
The discussion looks at techniques for communicating effectively with students of English for academic purposes during classroom revision of written compositions. The approach highlighted is to use a word processor projected in the classroom that "sideshadows" comments to the original text. The original text is left untouched while projected in front of the class, and a new text is typed alongside the original during classroom discussion while the original is probed for ideas, structures, and meanings that can be enhanced or expanded upon. A sample text is used for illustration of the classroom process. (Contains 6 references.) (MSE)
