Five ways to grow as a digital writing teacher

Author(s): Richard Beach, Chris Anson, Lee-Ann Kastman Breuch, & Thom Swiss


In this final chapter from the book, Teaching Writing Using Blogs, Wikis, and other Digital Tools, the authors suggest five practical strategies for educators to improve their abilities to teach writing with digital tools. The suggestions are also supported by numerous online links, articles and resources. Richard Beach, one of the book’s authors, has written several books on media literacy and teaches courses on media literacy at the University of Madison full-time and part-time at UCLA. This book is accompanied by a wiki page  that provides many useful resources.
