This section of CompFAQs is a response to Elizabeth Wardle’s suggestion [December 10, 2005, via WPA-L]: “Maybe we could have a CompFAQ where people provide their syllabi for various Comp Theory courses, with some initial context provided about the population in their courses.”
Links on this page lead to course materials (reading lists, course descriptions / rationale, assignments, course schedules, other information that we might refer to when we say “syllabus”) for courses in Composition Theory or Composition Theory and Pedagogy.
You can share your course materials in several ways: (Note: please include with your materials a short explanation of your local context: students, perceived purposes of the course, where the course fits in larger sequence, etc.)
