NSSE and WPA -- Invitation to Colleges and Universities to Participate in the Consortium for the Study of Writing in College

We invite you to participate in an unprecedented opportunity to learn about writing and the teaching of writing at your school.

The Council of Writing Program Administrators and the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) have partnered to develop a set of 27 questions about writing and its teaching across the curriculum. In spring 2008, we administered these questions to 82 US colleges by adding them to the regular NSSE questions. The responses of 23,000 students provide the broadest snapshot so far of the writing that US undergraduates do.

We invite you to propose a contribution to Teaching with Student Texts, a collection of essays focusing on the practice of using student texts in writing classrooms and other settings. We seek essays describing how teachers can use texts written by the students they are working with to illustrate the moves, strategies, principles, and forms of critical reading and academic writing.
