WAC Resources

There are a number of websites dedicated to Writing Across the Curriculum, primary among them, the WAC Clearinghouse hosted by Colorado State University:

http://wac.colostate.edu/

At Kingsborough, we have an e-reserve site with a select group of articles available to all interested faculty. Some are introductory; some are more theoretical, exploring the relationship between writing and learning or writing and thinking; some are case studies of classroom practice. Please note a password is required to access e-reserve sites. You may obtain one from Judy Cohen at ext. 5591 or from Kate.Garretson@kbcc.cuny.edu The address of the e-reserve site is:

http://eres.kingsborough.edu:8080/eres/coursepass.aspx?cid=136
