Smith, Kenneth J.
Reading and Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties, v8 n3 p287-94 Jul-Sep 1992
Describes how IBM's "LinkWay" hypertext program was used in the Tuba City Boarding School (Navajo Reservation) to develop reading improvement programs and to allow students to develop their own productions. Notes that the program addresses the cooperative, noncompetitive nature of the Navajo learning style, and the problems of unfamiliar content and lack of immediate purpose. (SR)
