This reader encourages students to explore the relationship between literacy and technology and the implications of that relationship on their culture and on their own lives at a time of rapid social and technological change. With an innovative perspective, Literacies and Technologies addresses the topic of "technology" broadly, highlighting the important relationships between technology and literacy at a time when technology is profoundly changing how we read and write. Yagelski includes all aspects of technology as they pertain to writing-from the pencil to the printing press to Internet publishing-and offers a historical perspective on recent technological developments, especially related to the computer and the Internet. The analytic framework of this book encourages readers to view literacy as encompassing the ability to engage the world through written communication, a way of using writing and reading to reflect on, understand, and act in the world. Technology refers to tools and systems created for this purpose. Thus technology includes literacy itself, as literacy is a system that helps to construct, create and function in the world. Thought-provoking readings and exercises are included through out the book, providing opportunities for readers to improve their reflective and analytic literacies. For anyone interested in developing skills in writing, reading and critical thinking while exploring a new perspective on technology.

For all students, the ability to write, to use a word-processing program, and to unite the two skills in a synergistic blend of form and content has become a key factor in achieving academic success. This book presents teachers with a framework for helping them help students achieve this success. Divided into two parts, the book provides teachers with guidance for incorporating computers into the writing classroom and for making computers "the" essential tool for writing and writing instruction. The first part of the book, "Theory and Research," discusses the theoretical underpinnings of computer-assisted writing instruction, and the second part, "Practice," features a compilation of practical suggestions for teaching writing with computers, including a wide assortment of writing lessons specifically designed to exploit the more "writer-friendly" features of the word processor. (Contains 70 references and 9 notes.) (NKA)
