Recources For Writing Instructors

WAC supports writing instructors with frequent workshops, presentations, and materials. In 2004-2005, we will continue the series of workshops on responding to student writing. However, if you have ideas for additional WAC workshops, we’re all ears!

Below, you will find assignments and assessments that other writing instructors have shared. Feel free to to use them as you develop your own materials. If you have WAC-related classroom materials (writing prompts, assignments, rubrics, and so on) that you would like to share with your colleagues, please send them.
