Oak Ridge High School – Conroe, Texas
During WordMAP’s original field test [1985-86], one fifth-grade teacher whose students were systematically using the software remarked that for the first time in his career, students routinely came to him with pointed questions about their writing. The questions, it turned out, were being prompted by icons inserted in their compositions by the grammar-checker. This, he pointed out, gave him the opportunity to teach the principles of grammar in the context of their own writing.
