Summary

"Educators will be faced soon, if they are not now, with questions on how to integrate the computer into the curriculum, and one of the first questions will be how to utilize the computer in teaching writing. This book represents a pioneering effort in this direction." -- D. LaMont Johnson, Texas Tech University

Marjorie Montague provides both the philosophical and theoretical background for research in computer-assisted composition, as well as a comprehensive review and synthesis of the efficacy research in this area. She focuses on effective writing instruction for elementary, secondary, and special needs students, and she proposes a model in which the teacher and the computer are viewed as compatible instructional agents within a microcomputer learning environment.

"Montague clearly grasps the paradox--that computer science not only has created problems, but that it also holds the promise of resolve for those same problems." -- Daniel L. Peterson, Northern Arizona University

Marjorie Montague is Assistant Professor in the School of Education and Allied Professions at the University of Miami, Coral Gables.
