Print Resources for Teaching New Media

Print Resources for Teaching New Media

Another useful tool for teaching Composition students about online discourse communities and New Media are good, old-fashioned books! I typically assign my Writing students at least a couple of readings about the web as a medium, including Marshall McLuhan's famous essay, "The Medium is the Message," and I have also found some good essays in the excellent anthology The New Media Book edited by Dan Harries. I will present on this topic at greater length at the May 12 Summit, but in the meanwhile I welcome input from you about good articles (be they printed or electronic) that can be used for teaching undergraduates about new media concepts.
