Postsecondary Framework Representative Curricular Resources

Building from the Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing, the assignments and program-wide descriptions provide concrete examples of the varied writing opportunities students may encounter in college. We encourage anyone to use these example documents to add to conversations about the habits of mind and writing strategies used in college.
