As we ask students to compose more digital writing, we also need to give greater instructional attention to digital reading. This resource explores how ebooks function and what possibilities they may hold for our readers and writers.
The first argument against e-books is that they actually impede children learning to read because parents interact differently when reading an actual book.
The second major controversy surrounding e-books and reading comprehension is that e-books make it harder to remember what you just read.

Reading and Writing eBooks and Immersive Texts

As ebooks and immersive, web-based texts continue to proliferate, many of us still wonder how to approach this type of reading, both for ourselves and our students. Even as librarians, teachers, and readers debate the quality, availability, and just plain fun of ebooks, we know that more and more of our students are experiencing them. In this collection, we explore a variety of formats for and questions about ebooks and immersive texts.
