A New Sort of Writing: E-Mail in the E-nglish Classroom.
Blase, Dean Woodring
English Journal, v90 n2 p47-51 Nov 2000
Describes a project which used email to link the author's English classroom with classrooms in three other states so that students could discuss Zora Neale Hurston's novel "Their Eyes Were Watching God." Discusses email as a distinct genre of writing with rules, characteristics, and even an aesthetic of its own. Offers a student-generated list describing effective electronic academic discourse. (SR)
