Approved texts

Every ICaP course must be assigned a rhetoric—a textbook which facilitates the explicit writing instruction necessary to achieve the learning outcomes for our courses. We want ICaP instructors to select texts which fit their teaching philosophies and dovetail with their research agendas. At the same time, we need to offer students consistent experiences which help them achieve course outcomes.

This list of textbooks, some of which can be taught across all of our syllabus approaches, and some approved only for select syllabus approaches, has been approved by the Introductory Writing Committee. Instructors can seek approval for a textbook not on this list — as a one-semester pilot to be considered for general use in the future.
