Description

In this lesson, from the New York Times Learning Network, students explore the effect of computers and word processing on traditional forms of communication and expression. Students write about their preference for either handwriting or word processing. They also learn about the effect that word processing is having on the tradition of handwriting in China by reading and discussing the article "Where the Pen is Mightier Than the PC."
