Students are online constantly, so teachers need to make technology an asset to all kinds of writing, according to the authors.

To that end, the authors show you how to use digital tools within a multi-week inquiry unit to increase students’ engagement as they write-to-learn and share knowledge. Their book is a clear model for tech-rich research writing that will inform your own inquiry-driven units. Guiding components include:

  • An inquiry-based, technology-rich unit on identity and culture that provides learners with opportunities to engage with the very same issues that are written about and discussed by citizens of a global society
  • 28 model lessons and a framework including extensions, tech tips, and activities that blend print, image, apps, and video so students build multiliteracy skills day by day
  • Recurring use of best practices like formative assessment, close reading, think alouds, and teaching key skills, including analyzing and synthesizing, annotating, checking credibility of sources, discussion, and writing about reading
  • Dozens of lessons and activities built around students favorite technology tools and online destinations, including: Citelighter, Smore, ThingLink, Padlet, and Cazles, Animoto, Mural.ly, and getLoupe, Genius and Lit Genius, Now Comment, You Voices
