The book is organized into three parts mimicking a student's progress through the American school system. The parts are divided as follows: 1. Beginning in Elementary and Middle Schools. 2. Continuing in the Secondary Grades. 3. Bridging to the College Years. Each chapter is further divided to detail a specific example of how technology was integrated in the writing lesson. Some examples include: Collaborative Digital Writing, Digital Writing Books, Be a Blogger, Multimedia Presentations From Yearlong Research and Community Based Culminating Projects, Student Engagement and Multimodality, Collaboration, Schema, and Identity, and Multiple Modes of Production in a College Writing Class.

The obvious problem with authentic project based lessons is the fact that these types of lessons don't always align with state mandated assessments. The disconnect is addressed fairly often within the vignettes and it is a problem that most of the teachers acknowledge.Glen Bledsoe writes, "Students usually have a keen ear for conflict in dialog and have little problem reproducing it.
