9780470407721: Because Digital Writing Matters: Improving Student Writing in Online and Multimedia Environments

How to apply digital writing skills effectively in the classroom, from the prestigious National Writing Project

As many teachers know, students may be adept at text messaging and communicating online but do not know how to craft a basic essay. In the classroom, students are increasingly required to create web-based or multi-media productions that also include writing. Since writing in and for the online realm often defies standard writing conventions, this book defines digital writing and examines how best to integrate new technologies into writing instruction.

  • Shows how to integrate new technologies into classroom lessons
  • Addresses the proliferation of writing in the digital age
  • Offers a guide for improving students' online writing skills

The book is an important manual for understanding this new frontier of writing for teachers, school leaders, university faculty, and teacher educators.

From the Back Cover:

The connectivity of the internet and the latest digital technologies have opened vast new opportunities, formats, and audiences for writing. Digital writing involves more than just word processing an essay or punching out an e-mail message; students can blog, text message, chat online, or create narratives for multi-media productions.

Based on case studies, interviews with educational professionals, and a decade's worth of research, Because Digital Writing Matters offers proven strategies to equip students with the communications skills that will enable them to thrive in our information-rich, high-speed, high-tech culture. The book also

  • Introduces the idea of digital writing as a mode of thinking, applicable to all grades and disciplines

  • Examines current trends, best practices, research, and issues in the teaching of digital writing

  • Offers practical solutions and models for planning, implementing, and assessing digital writing initiatives and writing programs

Because Digital Writing Matters reveals what teachers, administrators, and parents can do to meet the writing challenge in our nation's schools.

"Coming not a moment too soon, Because Digital Writing Matters is required reading for every educator and concerned citizen in our society." —Patricia Lambert Stock, professor emerita, Michigan State University, and visiting professor, The University of Maryland, College Park

"An important and useful book—a much-needed guide to the teaching of digital writing, with examples of teachers' exemplary practice." —Charles Moran, professor emeritus, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

The NATIONAL WRITING PROJECT (NWP), founded in 1974, is a nationwide network of educators, working together to improve the teaching of writing in the nation's schools and in other settings. The revised edition of their bestselling book, Because Writing Matters, is also available from Jossey-Bass. For more information on NWP, visit www.nwp.org.
