This book explores the ethical implications of using digital media tools in the writing classroom, particularly first-year composition, but applied more broadly as well. The author argues that in addition to Stuart Selber’s three multiliteracies, teachers of writing must include ethical literacy when teaching students to compose using digital tools. This book explores the need for this ethical literacy – drawing on interviews with writing program administrators and instructors – and offers implications, heuristics, outcomes, and sample assignments for teaching digital media ethics in writing.

Editorial Reviews

«Toby F. Coley’s central and significant argument – of the need for students to reflect on and learn about ethical literacy when writing with digital media – raises important issues for all instructors to consider. Using site-specific examples, Coley shows that ethical issues arise in all phases of teaching and learning with digital media, and he proposes an interesting and helpful curriculum for integrating ethical literacy into a digital composing curriculum.» (Heidi A. McKee, Associate Professor, Miami University) «In the context of the revolution that has been taking place in the creation, use, and dissemination of text in all its forms and purposes, Toby F. Coley’s book offers us a sophisticated and much-needed analysis of the ethical dimensions of digital literacies.» (Chris Anson, Director of the Campus Writing and Speaking Program, North Carolina State University)
