he WAC Resource Binder began as just that: a large, printed set of materials for Richmond faculty who employ Writing Fellows in our program. We have moved this resource online as a series of PDF-format files to enable frequent revisions and access by other WAC programs.

Many of the activities included in our binder are so common in composition theory and pedagogy that their original source cannot be traced. If you know the origins of these activities, please contact the site manager so permission to publish can be requested and proper credit given to the original creator in our next site revision.
