Summary

This paper is written to familiarize present and future English teachers with the current status of computer assisted instruction (CAI) in the teaching of English. Addressed both to practicing teachers who have little understanding of computers, and English education majors with computer science minors, it deals with programs written in BASIC. The first section is concerned with current attitudes about computers among English teachers, the need for computer literacy, and humanistic concerns regarding computers. The following section focuses on methodology in the teaching of English apart from any form of CAI. The final five sections deal with various aspects of instructional applications of computers which could augment the methods already described. Following each section is a list of suggested projects and activities which vary according to the learner's experience in teaching and/or programming. (Author/CMV)
