WAC Support for Composition

WAC supports faculty across the university to better communicate the vertical writing model.  This section is dedicated to Rhetoric and Composition faculty resources, a sampling of those services you see below: 

If you have a conference, family obligation or research appointment that will require you to miss a class that you are scheduled to teach, instead of cancelling class, you are invited to contact the WAC program to schedule a workshop or less.  Our workshops include, but are not limited to: Writing Across Curriculums, Writing in the Disciplines, Writing Strategies, Writing for Change, Writing to Learn, A-Portfolio Writing, Vertical Writing Model Overview, Technical Error, Plagarism, Documentation Style (MLA, APA, and Chicago), etc.  Where possible, the presentation will be tailored to have students consider WAC within the academic discipline at hand. 

Please register by clicking on the image below if you would like a WAC consultant to come to your class.

Rhetoric and Composition Mentoring

Composition faculty who are interested in teaching English 2001 are mentored by WAC consultants prior to teaching the class and should contact director Georgia Rhoades at rhoadesgd@appstate.edu for a WAC Consultant assignment. For more information on 2001 mentoring, please click here.

WAC Writer's Series

The WAC Program regularly invites scholars to campus for conversations with Composition and WID faculty for its Speakers' Series.  Since its founding in 2008, WAC has sponsored workshops by Chris Anson, Nancy Sommers, Nick Carbone, John Zubizarreta, Eileen Schell, Kathleen Yancey, Lisa Ede, Nedra Reynolds, Frank Farmer, Dee James, Joe Harris, Elizabeth Wardle, Kim Gunter, Beth Carroll, Mary Anne Maier, and Patrick Bahls.  We are particularly grateful to Bedford/St. Martin's and Appalachian's Office of Extension and Distance Education in helping us bring the best scholarship of the field to Appalachian faculty.  



The workshops below are workshops that WAC offers to instructors in Rhetoric and Composition and instructors in other disciplines.  We continue to grow our workshops and are happy to cater each workshop to your specific course or disciplines.  Please contact our director, Georgia Rhoades (rhoadesgd@appstate.edu) for more information or if you do not see a service below that meets your current needs.
