Resources

The Clearinghouse editors and members have compiled the following resources to support scholarly inquiry in WAC, CAC, and ECAC; WAC program development and operation; the teaching of writing; and student writers.


New Project: The First-Year Composition Archive

The First-Year Composition Archive serves as a resource for 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. Please visit the Archive at https://fyca.colostate.edu

The WAC Clearinghouse provides a range of resources for writers. Many of these are adapted from the Writing@CSU website, which supported writers and teachers from its initial establishment in 1993 at Colorado State University. Resources include more than 80 writing guides, which cover topics ranging from developing ideas for a writing project to genres in a range of disciplines to up-to-date citation guides to systems including APA, MLA, CSE, and Chicago.
