Abstract
THE PURPOSE OFTHIS RESEARCH EFFORT IS TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING BILINGUAL TEXT ANALYSIS SOFTWARE AS A TOOL TO ASSIST IN TEACHING ENGLISH WRITING SKILLS TO NON -NATIVE SPEAKERS. SINCE SPANISH IS THE VATIVE LANGUAGE PREDOMINANTLY SPOKEN BY STUDENTS ENROLLED IN BILINGUAL PRL PROGRAMS IN GRADES 1-12 IN THE SAN DIEGO AREA, IT HAS BEEN SELECTED AS THE TARGET LANGUAGE IN PHASE I. THIS EFFORT WILLADAPT COMPUTER SOFTWARE ORIGINALLY PRODUCED TO ANALYZE TEXT WRITTEN BY NATIVE ENGLISH SPEAKERS TO INCORPORATE THE TYPES OF SPELLING AND INTACTICAL ERRORS MADE BY THOSE WITH A SPANISH LANGUAGE BACKGROUND. WE WILL EXAMINE APPLICATIONS OOF THIS SOFTWARE IN CLASSROOMS USING KRASHEN'S NATURAL APPROACH AND IN THOSE USING THE OCGNITIVE METHOD, AND DETERMINE WHAT FEATURES THE PROGRAM MUST DISPLAY TO BE USEFEFUL IN VARIOUS EDUCATIONAL SETTINGS.
