REx: The Research Exchange

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. Learn more about REx by visiting its website.

The Coronavirus Stories Archive

In early 2020, teachers and students found themselves in the midst of a dangerous pandemic. The Coronavirus Stories Archive allows you to share your experiences — anonymously or otherwise — so that we can understand how, as a community, we reacted, adapted, and came through the pandemic. The site also provides resources for teachers who wish to develop writing assignments around the pandemic.

The First-Year Composition Archive

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.

National Census of Writing

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.

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).
