Texts that examine contemporary issues provide a backdrop for students to develop their writing skills beyond process and grammar. This session examines how texts in a first year writing course strengthened students’ writing and established a context for writing experiences. Findings suggest students’ writing, class participation, and faculty-student relationships improved.

This will be a short presentation followed by a discussion, using PowePoint and a projector. The audience will have an opportunity to examine the assessment results associated with the FYC courses, the survey instruments, and a sample of a reading used in the courses.
