Reviewer Comments:

This excellent resource is designed to offer students an opportunity to engage with new media literacy practices. Students learn about literary interpretation, character analysis, poetry, fan fiction, visualizing, and journaling, while using current digital media. Best literacy practices are promoted through written response to topics ranging from the Vietnam War to empathy, speculation, appropriation, etc using twitter and microblogging. Guided discussion takes place in class and online discussion forums , while the teacher provides prompts for reflection and writing. Opportunity for differentiation is embedded in these lessons.
