New Realms for Writing : Inspire Student Expression with Digital Age Formats Paperback / softback
The world should be the driving curriculum in our schools.
Assignments should be authentic, have real-world connections and encourage students to create meaningful work.
Accordingly, texts read in school should go beyond fiction and nonfiction, and include podcasts, popular culture, games and films to help students build writing and critical-thinking skills.
New Realms for Writing features a variety of teacher-created resources and samples of student work to illustrate how teachers can design inquiry units for their content area that are authentic and engage students while developing digital age skills.
This book provides insights into creating and using innovative materials and texts that are differentiated and personalized to student learners, specifically for teaching writing; offers tips for making thoughtful teaching and purpose central to teaching, with tech tools in support of student learning, but not driving it; and provides pedagogy and lesson ideas that promote student choice and voice within units of study that make cross-curricular connections.
