Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Not about filming novels, but how literacy and the teaching of it is being affected by the introduction of hypertext, email, word processing, and other electronic media. Addresses such concerns as how language on the screen works differently than on the page, what new literacy skills are needed and how they can be taught, the potential for new forms of text, the increased emphasis on visual representation, new forms of rhetoric, learning inside global communications, and new approaches to storytelling.
