Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book presents a well-organized, example-rich framework for teaching students to engage in Internet inquiry, the newest frontier in research skills. 21st-century teachers preparing their elementary or intermediate students to compete in an increasingly technological world will find this book an invaluable resource. Moreover, because the authors' QUEST model is rooted in foundational research on learning and literacy development, its applications transcend the domain of Internet literacy, supporting students' development of higher-order comprehension skills. The QUEST model will appeal to teachers who are already skilled in integrating technology into instruction, as well as those who are in the beginning stages of using the Internet with their students. As such, this book is an ideal text for undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in language arts and for reading specialist certification programs."--Margaret E. Pierce, EdD, University of Massachusetts at Amherst
 

"With a keen eye on practical applications, the authors have crafted an engaging, enthusiastic, and dynamic text for preservice and inservice teachers. They address both the 'big picture' and the day-to-day realities of Internet use. A focus on a constructivist model of instruction in concert with cutting-edge research provides readers with exciting and motivating linkages between the Internet and reading instruction. With a stimulating array of strategic handouts, relevant classroom activities, and the easy-to-use QUEST model, educators will discover a wealth of new learning opportunities for their students."--Anthony D. Fredericks, EdD, York College of Pennsylvania

"If you have been wondering how to help your students move from a 'copy and paste' style of Internet research to a more thoughtful and reflective form of reporting, then this book is an important resource for you. The book is packed with useful reproducibles, interesting quotations, and enlightening student examples. Elementary school teachers will welcome the case studies and suggestions for Internet-based lessons. Middle school teachers will value the reproducibles for increasing students' research and evaluation skills. All teachers (and researchers, too!) will appreciate the presentation of the science behind literacy and learning."--Tricia Armstrong, author of Information Transformation; education consultant, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
 

"Reading the Web is a veritable treasure trove of resources for the classroom teacher, the teacher educator, and the education researcher. At long last, here is a comprehensive and authoritative text on teaching the new literacies that is clearly grounded in relevant theory and research, yet is also reader-friendly and practical. What I like most about the book is that it is ultimately about how students learn, and how technology and literacy are intertwined. As Multiple Subjects Coordinator at Cal State, I would recommend this book be used as a text in the Literacy Coach/Reading Specialist program, and as a supplemental text in the preservice program. I also plan to recommend it for our literacy faculty book club."--Dana L. Grisham, PhD, California State University, East Bay

Children's Literature
This timely text should find an audience with teachers looking for a structure through which to frame their students’ work on research and the Internet. The authors begin with the necessary background on the use of the Internet in American schools, households, and workplaces, and employ this information to anchor the focus of the book--The QUEST Model of Internet Inquiry--to student learning and related literacy issues. The rest of the book focuses on the QUEST model; this large section begins with a consideration of preparation. After dealing with questions concerning how prepared the school and the teacher is in terms of technology and background knowledge, the authors break down the word QUEST into its signature parts. Q stands for questioning, and there is solid discussion of the need for students and teachers to understand those techniques. U is for understanding resources, and this becomes a very informative section on how to know which Internet sources are valid and reliable. E is for evaluation, and the section focuses on its importance and how we teach students to evaluate. Synthesizing is the highlight of the next section, and, as the authors note, the way in which teachers model approaches to this skill are difficult yet necessary. Finally, T focuses on how to transform information into a project or paper in a manner that shows maximum student learning. This book will be a solid resource for classroom teachers (especially with the large number of handout models offered in each chapter) and the vast number of anecdotes of success interactions with this approach certainly underscores that.
