This handbook collects resources that will help students become better college writers—from understanding what is expected of them, to improving their writing through revision, to where to find additional help on campus. Part I describes Queens College’s expectations for college writers and Part II includes handouts and exercises that might form the basis of the College Writing courses that students will experience.

This guide, originally prepared for faculty and graduate students teaching at Princeton, is a valuable resource for teachers at all institutions seeking ideas for teaching with writing. The handbook includes information and suggestions for the writing workshop, sequencing assignments, crafting assignments, commenting on student writing, grading papers, cultivating academic integrity, teaching with writing in science and engineering, and developing a language for describing writing.

We are collecting lesson plans of all writing topics and across all disciplines. If you'd like to share a teaching activity with colleagues, fill in this template and submit it to: jason.tougaw@qc.cuny.edu.
