ABSTRACT
The article focuses on research regarding a sixth grade text discussion group that was conducted through videoconferencing in the U.S. The middle school students were enrolled in a virtual reading group (VRG). An analysis was done of the perception of the "realness" of the virtual others. The responses were not evaluated by teachers, on the contrary, students themselves shared the evaluation of each other's takes on the text. It is reported that middle school educators have started feeling the importance of integrating technology into literacy instruction in the current scenario of today's highly technological and globalized world.
