This graduate paper, "Three Delivery Systems for Middle School Computer Literacy Curricula," investigates three delivery systems for computer literacy curricula in a middle school setting. The computer literacy curriculum at the middle school level is constantly being updated and changed to accommodate new technology and to implement new and effective teaching methods. There are few guidelines that are available when investigating computer literacy curriculum at the middle school level, but a variety of options do exist for the delivery of whatever curriculum a teacher selects. This review examines several delivery systems for middle school computer literacy curricula and explores the strengths and limitations of each. The delivery systems investigated are cooperative learning techniques, simulations, and instructional drill and practice methods. The author also investigated how a combination of these methods can be used with young adolescents in a middle school environment.
