The book is grounded in state-of-the-art research on the writing process and the role of writing in content-area learning. Teacher-friendly features include vivid classroom examples, differentiation tips, links to online resources, and reproducible worksheets and forms. The large-size format facilitates photocopying.

"Rich with authentic and inspiring examples, this book clearly addresses the 'whats,' 'whys,' and 'how-tos' of integrating technology into writing instruction. It is like an innovative colleague sitting by my side during those stages of curriculum planning when I'm seeking creative support and in need of my own transformative learning experience."--Melissa Provost, MSEd, language arts teacher, Portsmouth (New Hampshire) Middle School

"The authors offer an impressive range of practical solutions for promoting skilled academic writing and transformative thinking. Each chapter pairs sound pedagogical practices with concrete examples of how to differentiate and digitize writing instruction across multiple modes and purposes. The authors' keen insights will inspire even the most wary educators to hop on board and join their digital writing adventure."--Julie Coiro, PhD, School of Education, University of Rhode Island

"Students will benefit and progress will be made when educators begin to focus on the technology tools that nearly all adolescents already know how to use. Those of us in the classroom who adopt technology readily (and those who are more hesitant) will benefit from a book such as this to get ideas to fine-tune our daily lessons. All secondary teachers, not just English teachers, will find accessible ideas for improving writing instruction in the digital classroom."--Paula Dreyfuss, MSEd, teacher, Vista Unified School District, California

"Filled with ideas and instructional activities that cut across all content areas, this stimulating book showcases ways to use technology to help students create, communicate, collaborate, and learn. Through scenarios set in real classrooms, the authors bring to life both the big picture and the day-to-day realities of how to prepare students for new forms of writing and communication in the 21st century. Teachers, literacy coaches, curriculum specialists, and teacher educators will discover a wealth of new learning opportunities that will transform the way they teach."--Jill Castek, PhD, Graduate School of Education, University of California, Berkeley

"This powerful book fills a huge gap. Teachers recognize the need to respond to students in 21st-century ways, but many just do not know how. Wolsey and Grisham provide classroom-ready ideas for using digital tools to teach writing, complete with solid rationales. The book is organized in such a way that teachers can read it from beginning to end, as I did, or identify specific areas of interest and find ways to improve teaching. I look forward to sharing this book with my students and colleagues."--Susan Lenski, EdD, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, Portland State University
