An instructor resource to accompany The Word on College Reading and Writing, which is an open educational resource (OER) for developing college readers and writers.
Written by five college reading and writing instructors, this interactive, multimedia text draws from decades of experience teaching students who are entering the college reading and writing environment for the very first time. It includes examples, exercises, and definitions for just about every reading- and writing-related topic students will encounter in their college courses.
