The following projects support work that is related to the mission of the WAC Clearinghouse.
The WEC model, developed at the University of Minnesota, offers a faculty-driven approach to supporting effective and relevant writing and writing instruction within an undergraduate curriculum. Learn more about this innovative model, gleaned from three decades of research, at the University of Minnesota WAC Program website.
The First-Year Composition Archive supports scholars and teachers who seek to learn more about trends in first-year writing, the history of the discipline, teaching resources, pedagogical developments, and much more. Supported by the Clearinghouse, the Archive seeks contributions of syllabi, assignments, and course materials from your earliest years in the profession to your current courses.
Offered in association with the International Writing Across the Curriculum Conference, the three-day WAC Institute assists new and prospective leaders of WAC/WID as well as experienced directors who face new challenges or wish to expand, update, or revitalize their programs.
Rhetorlist tracks new books that address in rhetoric and writing, composition studies, technical communication, and related disciplines. The list is maintained by Tim Lockridge, a member of the faculty in the Department of English at Miami University (in Oxford, Ohio).
Launched in March 2013, the National Census of Writing seeks to provide a data-based landscape of writing instruction at two- and four-year public and not-for-profit institutions of higher education in the United States. It provides empirical data that can help ground the design and administration of writing programs, writing across the curriculum programs, and writing centers.
Operating under the auspices of the WAC Clearinghouse, REx receives reports on contemporary writing research from active researchers, and periodically REx peer-reviews and publishes those reports online through a searchable database that enables users to search for models, methods, and collaborators.
