Using Web-Based Tools in the English Language Arts Classroom

21st-century technology surrounds us everywhere – but how can we employ it to teach? Using Web-Based Tools in the English Language Arts Classroom gives ELA teachers the lifeline they need. Students who complete these activities will apply a number of skills directly related to academic standards and 21st century learning.

Using Web-Based Tools in the English Language Arts Classroom provides clear, explicit lesson plans and an explanation of the instructional potential of wikis, blogs, web-based word processing, and web-based presentations. Each tool is featured in five activities. Lessons can be finished in a single class period or expanded across a few classes for longer projects.

Sample topics include:

  • Working in a Wiki
  • Literary Analysis–21st Century Style
  • Build Your Own Reference Library
  • Poetry Anthology
  • Interactive News
  • Peer Editing a Mini-Essay

Using Web-Based Tools in the English Language Arts Classroom includes vocabulary lists, teaching tips, assessments, additional activities, recommended web sites, and much more. Correlation charts connect each activity to the NCTE/IRA Standards, ISTE’s National Education Technology Standards for Students (NETS*S), and the Framework for 21st Century Learning from the Partnership for 21st Century Skills. Properly used, this book can be fun for students while still helping them strive to reach the high standards that you expect from them in your classroom.

The author, Susan Young, is an international expert in the intersection of technology and education. She has been a leader in instructional technology since the 1970s, with a special focus on the challenge of promoting literacy in the digital era.
