Welcome to the WAC Bibliography. The bibliography, developed and presented in collaboration with CompPile, was developed to support teachers across the disciplines who are interested in using writing and speaking in their courses; scholars who are interested in WAC theory and research; and program administrators, designers, and developers who have interests in the latest work in faculty outreach, program design, and assessment.

To view entries in the bibliography, follow the links to the right. If you are a member of the Clearinghouse, you can recommend new sources for the bibliography.

In this essay, we review literature that describes a work-related theme in agriculture WAC programs as seen primarily from teachers' vantage points. First, we trace the workplace-driven rationale for implementing WAC in agriculture; second, we review WAC assignments topics and teaching strategies that ag. faculty have incorporated to assist students' preparation for the workplace; finally, we conclude by identifying innovations in WAC in agriculture.
