A Notorious Woman : Anne Royall in Jacksonian America by Elizabeth J Clapp( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the life, reputation, and writings of Mrs. Anne Newport Royall (1769-1854) for what they can tell us about the Jacksonian era and women's roles in the period. A travel writer and newspaper editor, Royall wrote extensively about the religious and political issues of her day. She took an actively partisan line, generally as a Jacksonian, attacking both the agents of the evangelical revival and the Bank of the United States, as well as corruption in government. As a consequence of her writings and public behavior, she became highly controversial, particularly as she pushed the limits of acceptable feminine behavior. In addition to illuminating issues of concern to historians of the early American republic, the book offers a new biography of an interesting figure who has been poorly served by her biographers, not least by confusing myth with fact"--Provided by publisher
The development of PLATO computer-based instruction for the severely and profoundly developmentally disabled by Martin A Siegel( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2 year project (July 1, 1978 through June 30, 1980) sought to determine the viability, attractiveness, and effectiveness of computer based instruction with approximately 225 severely and profoundly mentally handicapped and developmentally disabled institutionalized children and adults. Over 100 instructional formats were developed by staff from the plato Education Group of the Computer-based Education Research Laboratory, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Skills addressed included basic language and math skills important to academic instruction. A direct instruction model was used for designing the computer based lessons. The means of delivering this instruction was the plato system, a sophisticated computer based instructional system utilizing a versatile graphics and touch sensitive terminal. The research suggested that carefully designed plato materials could provide effective and efficient instructional services not currently offered by other media. (Author)
A theory-based computer tutorial model by Robert C Dixon( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because of the need for models to illustrate some possible answers to practical courseware development questions, a specific, three-section model incorporating the Corrective Feedback Paradigm (pcp) is advanced for applying theory to courseware. The model is reconstructed feature-by-feature against a framework of a hypothetical, one-to-one, teacher-directed tutorial, indicating the following for each feature: (1) its theoretical and empirical bases, if any; (2) some strengths and weaknesses; (3) its specifications; and (4) research considerations. The model is characterized as being theory-based and sufficiently specific to generate actual lesson designs as well as for research purposes. Instructional features discussed are the pretest, frame, and modeling. Analyses of features related to student and computer/teacher interactions include those concerned with determining the tentative practice set, eliciting a response, judging a response, providing feedback for a correct response, determining error type, revising item type, providing feedback for incorrect responses, and exhausting the item set. Immediate and delayed posttests and lesson revision are also examined, and applications of the model for lesson design are considered. Several figures illustrate the model, and 20 references are listed. (Lmm)
The PCP SYS IV management system : implementation and training overview by Dorothy Z Silver( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the final paper in a series of three on sys iv, a computer-based management system developed by the plato Curriculum Project (pcp) which tests students, routes students to lessons, stores detailed records of online student activity, and keeps summary records of student activities. An introduction describes how the system simultaneously addresses the needs of students, classroom teachers, and school administrators. The remainder of the paper explicates how implementation is carried out to tailor the system to a project, which may serve a broad population range. Considerations important at the preliminary stage that are listed include the characteristics of the student population, the educational environment, and the catalog structure. Under project staff training, the discussion includes both initial and follow-up training procedures. The importance of site visits in maintaining a project is emphasized, while final considerations center on the "user transparency" of the system. Appendices include programs for signing on as an instructor, adding a student to a group, and a sample agenda for a sys iv training workshop. (Lmm)
