Building on the groundbreaking research of the MacArthur Foundation's Digital Media & Learning initiative, this book crosses the divide between digital literacies and traditional print culture to engage a generation of students who can read with a book in one hand and a mouse in the other. Reading in a Participatory Culture tells the story of an innovative experiment that brought together playwright and director Ricardo Pitts-Wiley, Melville scholar Wyn Kelley, and new media scholar Henry Jenkins to develop an exciting new curriculum to reshape the middle and high school English language arts classroom. This book offers highlights from the resources developed for teaching Herman Melville's Moby-Dick and outlines basic principles of design, implementation, and assessment that can be applied to any text. Book Features: Models a new approach for teaching reading in a participatory culture, which has been field-tested in six different classrooms. Considers how19th-century authors, such as Herman Melville, participated in the literary culture around them.< /li>Includes links to a complimentary online digital book, Flows of Reading, which shares the many videos produced by Project New Media and models the application of these core concepts to a range of other texts, including The Lord of the Rings, The Hunger Games, and Flotsam.
