Compare and Contrast Electronic Text with Traditionally Printed Text.
Karchmer, Rachel
The electronic text program described in this lesson plan guides students to compare and contrast the characteristics of electronic text with the characteristics of traditionally printed text, gaining a deeper understanding of how to navigate and comprehend information found on the Internet. During a 30 minute and a 45 minutes lesson, students will: navigate a website using electronic features including graphics, digitized speech, and video; demonstrate their understanding of how reading text on the Internet differs from reading a traditionally printed textbook; and consider how they could integrate electronic textual aids into their own writing to support meaning. The instructional plan, a list of resources, student assessment/reflection activities, and a list of National Council of Teachers of English/International Reading Association (NCTE/IRA) Standards addressed in the lesson are included. An Internet workshop form is attached. (PM)
