“Finally, the second edition of Reading the Web has arrived! The authors masterfully pair research on online reading comprehension with timely, practical instructional strategies for teachers with varying comfort levels with technology. Their QUEST model and related activities, handouts, and assessment ideas are informed by years of experience supporting learners working through the complexities of Internet inquiry. This book will give you the confidence you need to jump in and get started.”

—Julie Coiro, PhD, School of Education, University of Rhode Island

“The book gave me a much stronger understanding of why Web literacy is so important. It breaks down important Internet inquiry skills necessary for not just students but also educators to be successful in our technologically evolving society. I appreciate the purposeful handouts and graphic organizers and the real-life examples that demonstrate how students can benefit from utilizing Web literacy skills in all curriculum areas. This is an essential how-to guide that is well organized for quick reference.”

—Ryan Wilson, MS, teacher, Shawnee Mission School District, Kansas

“Dobler and Eagleton provide extensive guidance for teaching students to use the Web efficiently and critically—one of the central tasks of education in this century. They offer an accessible framework and actionable strategies that draw on theory and research. Teachers will find tools to address many of the challenges that the Web poses. Administrators and curriculum developers can use the book to help craft a cohesive plan and practices for the development of Web literacy in their schools and districts. Teacher educators can use the text to better prepare teachers for the complex digital world in which we live. Whether you are new to the work of these gifted educators or have long been a fan, Reading the Web, Second Edition, should be on your bookshelf (physical or digital).”

—Nell K. Duke, EdD, School of Education, University of Michigan

“As a teacher educator and researcher interested in the intersections of literacy and technology, I fell in love with this essential resource—particularly with the QUEST model for Internet exploration and learning. In the second edition, the authors have updated and extended their model to keep up with rapidly evolving technology and with the research-based learning theories that undergird robust literacy teaching in diverse classrooms. I appreciate the second edition more than ever, and will use it prominently in my teaching. Classroom teachers will welcome the careful explanations and vivid examples that facilitate implementation with young learners.”

—Dana L. Grisham, PhD, Teacher Education Department (retired), California State University, East Bay

“A terrific resource for teachers who need instructional activities to help students develop 21st-century skills. This book provides the kind of support that teachers are asking for as we work to integrate content and technology in the age of the CCSS.”

—Carla Chavez, instructional literacy coach, Auburn-Washburn Unified School District, Kansas

“From recognized experts in the field, this book is comprehensive, accessible, and masterful. It is written for educators by educators. The book is filled with fresh, research-to-practice ideas and instructional strategies designed to help students grapple with the complexity of Web 3.0. It is a 'must read' for educators who want to ensure that their students have the necessary skills to use the Web to deepen literacy and enhance learning in 21st-century classrooms.”

—Bernadette Dwyer, PhD, Education Department, St. Patrick’s College, Dublin City University, Ireland

“As more students gain access to mobile technologies—along with increased possibilities for collaboration, communication, and information gathering—educators have a responsibility to integrate Web literacy into their current curricula. This book is written with the practitioner in mind, providing a rare glimpse into classrooms where students successfully navigate the Web. Both pre- and inservice teachers will find useful, authentic work samples, practical ideas, and instructional materials for helping their students succeed. I will use this book in both undergraduate and graduate literacy courses.”
