With a clear, friendly voice, this book shows how to incorporate the latest research and ideas in literacy into the classroom.

Excellent book on using technology to enhance reading instruction. The online format has a couple of limitations, but the clear tutorials for the different tech tools give this book an advantage over normal e-books. I appreciate the examples from a wide range of English classes - regular, honors and AP. The videos make it much easier to imagine and plan how this instruction might look in my own classroom.

This is a valuable resource for the teaching of reading in the digital age -- with plenty of classroom anecdotes as well as samples of work, and video reflections to help explain the rationale behind the strategies. Spillane is knowledgeable, and insightful, and welcoming in her presence.

What a treasure chest of teaching ideas and the tech tools, so many choices and ideas for inspiring and exciting student learning as well as advancing teachers' skills. But not just lists of applications and resources, there are screencasts and video explanations of "how to" as well as friendly, warm, personal explanations of ideas and technical application. I was wary of the e-format for a professional book. But there is so much great stuff packed into this e-tome!

This is a book that SHOWS us practice in action. Lee Ann is an inspiring teacher who clearly understands both our "roots" as English teachers and the directions that our learners need to head in order to grow as readers and writers in a digital age. I am a better teacher because of this book.
