''This book presents a well-organized example-rich framework for teaching students to engage in Internet inquiry the newest frontier in research skills. 21st-century teachers preparing their intermediate or secondary students to compete in an increasingly technological world will find this book an invaluable resource. Moreover because the authors' QUEST model is rooted in foundational research on learning and literacy development its applications transcend the domain of Internet literacy supporting students' development of higher-order comprehension skills. The QUEST model will appeal to teachers who are already skilled in integrating technology into instruction as well as those who are in the beginning stages of using the Internet with their students. As such this book is an ideal text for undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in language arts and for reading specialist certification programs.''--Margaret E. Pierce EdD University of Massachusetts at Amherst ''With a keen eye on practical applications the authors have crafted an engaging enthusiastic and dynamic text for preservice and inservice teachers. They address both the 'big picture' and the day-to-day realities of Internet use. A focus on a constructivist model of instruction in concert with cutting-edge research provides readers with exciting and motivating linkages between the Internet and reading instruction. With a stimulating array of strategic handouts relevant classroom activities and the easy-to-use QUEST model educators will discover a wealth of new learning opportunities for their students. This book is a treasure trove of possibilities!''--Anthony D. Fredericks EdD York College of Pennsylvania
