Part of what is required of readings in an online environment is the ability to comprehend at very high levels. Reading in an online environment requires processing strategies from low level word recognition to higher level meaning constructions and critical literacy strategies. Strategic readers of electronic texts must also adapt to another change in comprehension processes-one that focuses on conducting research. These changes in text processing hold important implications for what it means to be a strategic reader of both conventional and electronic texts. This understanding of the nature of strategic reading with electronic media is critical for guiding the development of instructional designs for teachers. This roundtable presentation will demonstrate the ways in which we are using WebQuests to enhance the teaching of critical reading strategies for a federally funded professional development project in reading with teachers in grades 2-8.
