Electronic Reading Workshop: Beyond Books with New Literacies and Instructional Technologies
Larson, Lotta C.
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v52 n2 p121-131 Oct 2008
In response to the challenge of meeting the needs of today's learners, teachers must know how to teach and facilitate new literacies and instructional technologies. This article introduces the concept of an electronic reading workshop (ERW), in which participants read eBooks, respond to literature in digital response journals, participate in online literature discussions, and create technology-based literature extension projects. The article further explains how an ERW was introduced and implemented within a classroom community of preservice teachers and provides suggestions for adapting and implementing an ERW in middle-level classrooms. (Contains 2 tables and 6 figures.)
