Summary
  • Sunburst Communications's A Newberry Adventure: A Wrinkle in Time ($59) is a study enhancement for an award-winning children's book. The Apple II series software focuses on vocabulary found in the text and on story comprehension by prompting students to fill in the blanks in a series of questions. Documentation is good, but while the program is easy to load and run, it is slowed down by graphics. Problems with the program include: no screen help; no teacher data control; and no explanation about wrong answers. Because it is focused on only one book, the software would be used, at best, once a year. The 'Overall Rating' is C+.
