Subject: Seeking Survey Respondents

Principal Investigator: Dr. Donald J. Leu
Student Researcher: Laurie A. Henry
Study Title: Teacher Beliefs about New Literacy Instruction Scale

You are invited to participate in a survey that explores teacher?s 
beliefs about teaching the new literacy skills (reading and writing) 
that students require when using the Internet.

I am a graduate student at the University of Connecticut  and a member 
of this listserv community.  I am conducting this survey because I am 
interested in finding out what teachers believe about teaching students 
the new literacy skills of the Internet during regular classroom 
instruction.  Survey results will be used to create appropriate 
professional development sessions for school districts that provide 
support and resources for the integration of technology (and the 
Internet in particular) within K-12 school curriculum.

Your participation in this study will require completion of an online 
survey.  This should take approximately 5-10 minutes of your time.  
Your participation will be anonymous and you will not be contacted 
again in the future.  You will not be paid for being in this study.  
This survey does not involve any risk to you.  However, the benefits of 
your participation may impact the teaching profession by providing 
important information about teachers? beliefs regarding new literacy 
instruction on the Internet.
