Currently Reading: Crafting Digital Writing

Troy Hicks offers teachers a guide to taking student writing from paper to screen and creating activities that engage students and inspire them to produce their best compositional work. In his first book, The Digital Writing Workshop, Hicks shows teachers simple steps for connecting the writer's workshop elements we know and love to digital tools that can streamline workshop activities and connect students to digital tools of their time. In Crafting Digital Writing, Hicks dives in a little deeper by focusing on how to guide students to examine the craft of web-text and multimedia compositions. Students are then poised to create their own compositions that not only satisfy the writing skills required by adopted standards, but, even better, motivate students to draft, revise, and publish high quality original works that can be presented to a genuine  global audience.
