Abstract/Description: Second Edition: This text is a transformation of Writing for Success, a text adapted by The Saylor Foundation under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 License without attribution as requested by the work’s original creator or licensee. Third Edition (2019): We made two significant changes to the textbook: we reformatted it from a PDF to modules within our Learning Management System (iCollege) and as an open-web-based book. The modularized version is downloadable and exportable and will live on the ALG and GSU websites. The web-based book will be ready by August 2019 and will also live on the ALG and GSU websites. The other significant change we made was to write an instruction manual that provides guidance to who we see as the primary audience for the manual: new composition instructors. In our department, these are newly-hired part-time instructors or full-time teachers returning to teaching composition or who have never taught it before. When we surveyed the faculty about what they wanted from an instruction manual, we got a number of requests for sample papers, but ended up going in the reverse direction for two reasons: first: the department leadership is moving to create an online resource library into which we hope many faculty will put their assignment sheets, exercises, scaffolding, and sequencing.
