Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book fascinated me—especially the blend of personal reflection and the researcher voices. The relationship between reading/writing hypertext is little understood, and this book offers, in the context of invention, a good start in that direction. This is a timely book; there is nothing else like it.” — Nick Carbone, coauthor of Writing Online: A Student's Guide to the Internet and World Wide Web
Booknews
DeWitt (English, Ohio State U. at Marion) offers this aid to teachers seeking a greater understanding of the theories of computer technology use in classrooms, and their practical applications in composition instruction. He uses instructional stories, histories and classroom applications from his own teaching experiences to discuss both the computer technology that students use to research, read, create and compose, plus the processes of invention they employ in writing. Coverage includes the use of computer-mediated discussion; possibilities for teaching invention using the World Wide Web; and students' creation of hypertext writings in conjunction with writing a required, traditional academic text.
