FROM THE BLOG: As a college teacher of writing, I was always uncomfortable with high school teachers asking me what they should do to prepare their students for postsecondary writing. After years of giving vague and unhelpful answers, I finally landed on a less vague, but still unhelpful answer: Don’t prepare students. Teach great high school writing and then when they get to college, I’ll teach college writing. For this reason, and to represent the expansive goals of the program, the College-Ready Writers Program is now College, Career, and Community Writers Program, or C3WP.
