Hi, All —
As you may be aware, Barb Bird, Doug Downs, Moriah McCracken, and Jan Reiman are editing a collection on Next Steps in Writing about Writing, a compendium of approaches to WAW assignments, courses, and programs by about 40 teachers and researchers from around the country.
One chapter we would like to include in that collection is a roundtable of WPAs who have built or are building programs that use WAW approaches. The roundtable will be a collaboration of 4-5 authors responding to a short series of questions we editors will pose about the challenges, strategies, and rewards of creating whole-program WAW instruction.
Currently we are building the roundtable, and we wanted to solicit participation from across WAW Standing Group membership in order to represent a good selection of institutional types and program configurations.
If you would be interested in writing short responses to a series of questions on being a WPA in a program using, or trying to use, WAW approaches, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, telling us what type of institution your program is in and briefly detailing the nature of your program and its use of WAW approaches.
Doug Downs, Barb Bird, Moriah McCracken, and Jan Rieman
