Digitized by the Colorado State University Libraries. An earlier version, based on the manuscript alone, was created in 2000.

CoverAddressing the design, funding, operation, and underlying pedagogical principles of WAC programs, this comprehensive collection of essays offers important advice to WAC program designers and teachers. In 12 chapters, the contributors to this important collection discuss issues including program design, writing in the disciplines, writing to learn, writing-intensive courses, and the relationships among WAC programs, first-year writing programs, general education, and writing centers. Please note that the edition created in 2000 has different pagination than the original Sage edition. This was the first out-of-print book re-issued by the Clearinghouse, and we worked from the word processing files provided by Sue McLeod to develop the open-access version.
