New to WAW? Start here.

Welcome! If you are new to Writing about Writing, we recommend doing the following:

  • Read about some sample courses. For instance, Barbara Bird describes her WAW-themed basic writing course at Taylor University in this article.
  • Take a look at the kinds of writing projects students in WAW courses might develop by browsing Stylus, UCF’s Journal of First-Year Composition.
  • For some basic scholarship on WAW and its effectiveness, see Doug Downs’s (2010) annotated bibliography.

If you like what you see, make sure you subscribe to the WAW Network email list as well as to site updates (so you can be notified when there is a new post)!
