Description

 

Incorporate technology into your writing lessons and captivate the interest of your adolescents (or digital natives) with the guidance of Liz Stephens and Kerry Ballast.

 

Teaching writing in the secondary classroom has dramatically changed. The majority of today’s middle and high school students are using a digital platform and the read-write web for daily communication, often IM-ing (instant messaging), text-ing, (text messaging), and posting blogs, photos, and videos to their personal websites (such as MySpace and Facebook on the Web 2.0). To capture these digital natives’ attention in the classroom and develop good writing skills for life, Stephens and Ballast guide teachers in how to successfully implement technology for writing across the curriculum and create engaging lesson plans. They outline four frames of writing–inside writing, responsive writing, purposeful writing, and social action writing–and present student-centered and inquiry-based reading/writing lessons to connect real-world writing to content area standards. The result is a state-of the-art resource for helping teachers teach every student to write inside and outide of the classroom.
