New Book by CRWP Teacher and Director Released

Chippewa River Writing Project teacher consultant, Jeremy Hyler, and Director Troy Hicks release a new book this week from Routledge — Create, Compose, Connect! Reading, Writing, and Learning with Digital Tools. The book’s description, from the Routledge website, states:

Create Compose Connect CoverFind out how to incorporate digital tools into your English language arts class to improve students’ reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills. Authors Jeremy Hyler and Troy Hicks show you that technology is not just about making a lesson engaging; it’s about helping students become effective creators and consumers of information in today’s fast-paced world. You’ll learn how to use mobile technologies to teach narrative, informational, and argument writing as well as visual literacy and multimodal research. Each chapter is filled with exciting lesson plans and tech tool suggestions that you can take back to your own classroom immediately.

 Along with a companion blog and wiki,  the book has been featured in a variety of education-related blogs including this post today from MiddleWeb, a webinar last week with 1to1 Technology, and through Jeremy’s post on Teach Thought.
This summer, Hyler and Hicks will lead a one-week institute related to the book at CMU in Mt. Pleasant, MI. Contact Troy Hicks for more information.
