Writing students need opportunities in their language arts classrooms to develop the global skills that are paramount in today’s digital world. Students should not only be prepared to communicate in traditional forms but also through multiple literacies as well. Secondary ELA teachers and first-year composition instructors can build interest in writing tasks by including digital writing and multimodal elements that appeal to Gen Z students while also developing skills that transfer to other disciplines, civic life, and career goals. A digital writing sample unit for secondary ELA and FYC is included.
