This issue's Reviews consider how various texts challenge writing teachers to rethink not only writing instruction, but writing itself. "Literacy" as we know it is being reshaped in many ways. As Kolko, Regan, and Romano point out in Writing in an Electronic World, we teach students "living through the large-scale shift from a print to an electronic culture – students who might learn in networked composition classrooms, who might participate in electronic reading and writing forums, and who are all confronted with the challenge of preparing for life and work in the twenty-first century" (xv).
