Integrated Reading and Writing (IRW) Learning Community

How do we invite and apprentice students into the multiple literacy demands of the 21st century?  How ought wenamingwhatweknow to teach reading and writing in first-year composition classes?  Is writing a subject of study, a practice, or both? How do we prepare students for the reading and writing demands they’ll experience across disciplines? How do we engage faculty in on-going, collaborative inquiry to build our capacity to teach reading and writing?

To address these questions and more, we launched the Integrated Reading and Writing (IRW) learning community in summer 2018.

This learning community invites faculty to learn theories and practices in the teaching of reading and writing, and it creates much-needed space for collaboration and dialogue.
