Welcome to the First-Year Composition Archive Website

The First-Year Composition Archive serves as a resource for scholars and teachers who seek to learn more about trends in first-year writing, the history of the discipline, teaching resources, pedagogical developments, and much more. To extend the research mission of this archive, we hope to receive syllabi, assignments, and course materials from your earliest years in the profession to your current courses. We encourage faculty to use these resources to assist in first-year composition course design, research projects on the teaching of writing, and helping writers across the curriculum. To read more about how to use these resources ethically, please refer to our Ethical Use Statement.
