Heath, Robert W. – 1985

While teaching mechanical aspects of writing in English as a second language (ESL) to ten- and eleven-year-olds has been found to be relatively simple, the most difficult thing to teach, and the first to break down when guidance is removed, is logical information sequencing. Without guidance, most children will produce random sentences, but when…

Reed, Robert L.; Reed, Patricia L. – 1984

A set of computer programs was developed to support instruction in an introduction to education course for prospective teachers. The programs provide teacher education students with examples of various uses of the microcomputer to support classroom instruction. The instructional programs represent three types: drill and practice, tutorial and…

Levin, Sidney – Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching, 1984

Presents the listing (TRS-80) for a computer program which derives the relativistic equation (employing as a model the concept of a moving clock which emits photons at regular intervals) and calculates transformations of time, mass, and length with increasing velocities (Einstein-Lorentz transformations). (JN)

Classroom Computer Learning, 1984

Offers suggestions for five computer-oriented classroom activities. They include uniting a writing class by having them collectively write a book using a word processor, examining FOR/NEXT loops, using a compound interest computer program, and developing a list of facts about computers. Includes four short programs which erase monitor screens. (JN)
