The Computer in Reading and Language Arts

In this stimulating and readable book, educators--most of whom have long been involved in computer-based literacy research efforts--provide up-to-date information on computer-based activities in reading and language arts. These experts offer valuable goals and strategies for integrating computer technology into the reading/language arts curriculum, including suggestions for activities that should and should not be used. They also address the basics of developing, evaluating, and using computer-based reading instruction programs. The unique benefits of computer technology to teach English as a second language, writing skills, and the reading process to early readers are thoroughly explored. Innovative Uses of the Computer in the Language Arts Classroom

  • Computerized readability assessment
  • Reinforcement and instructional objectives
  • Student interest profiles
  • Class book files

    This exciting book--in a broader sense--corrects the failure by many to consider the literacy issues that invariably surround and govern computer use. While the types of computer-literacy environments differ, the literacy requirements are still the same--the computer and the user must communicate through text. Thus, The Computer in Reading and Language Arts provides essential understanding of the literacy requirements and environments involved in computer use.
