An Introduction to Teaching Composition in an Electronic Environment is designed for instructors who have an "average" knowledge of computers overall and very little training or experience on how they can be used beneficially in the composition classroom. As such, the book focuses on offering practical explanations and specific ideas for lesson plans that can easily be incorporated into class time.

The text is divided into two parts. The first section explains the basics of the three main computer tools used in composition - word processor, e-mail, and the World Wide Web - and focuses on some basic ways these tools can be implemented for teaching writing. While the material assumes some basic knowledge, major concepts and terminology are always explained and defined fully. The second section addresses more directly the application of technology in the classroom. It includes practical advice on preparing for a course with an electronic component and what to do the first few days of class. This section also includes a series of lesson plans categorized according to pedagogical goals and technological requirements.

A third supplementary section of this text includes trouble-shooting guides for common problems in the lab, a glossary of computer terms, sample Web pages that teachers can adapt for their courses, a section on Netiquette, and an index of on-line writing and grammar resources on the Web.
