How to Use This GuideThis document is intended to highlight resources that can be used to address the topic of Writing in Academia in a First-Year Writing Course. All resources are Open Access and can be downloaded to a Course Management System via hyperlink.IntroductionOften students enroll in a college-writing course with the common misconception that they will be doing more of what they did in high school English. This portion of the course is simply to introduce students to college writing, specifically how it differs from that of high school, the myths and expectations of writing for higher education, as well as types of assignments instructors may ask students to do. This module does not include many activities, for its intent is not to hone the writing skills of students. This introductory guide is intended to help students transition into new ways of approaching writing, and can be utilized regardless of the types of writing assignments chosen for the course.
