Teaching Writing & Speaking

Words of Wisdom

The best ideas come to you when you're sitting down, working. That's when most of the breakthroughs occur - simply by doing the work. If someone wanted to be a runner, you don't tell them to think about running, you tell them to run. And the same simple idea applies to writing, I hope.

— Markus Zusak

Three sections of this site will help you teach writing and public speaking:
  All three have useful information for any type of course that includes writing or public speaking, The Instruction section includes posts devoted specifically to instructing graduate-level writers.

We support writing instruction through our discussion list, which you can join by contacting us or emailing directly us at uwc@tamu.edu. The list is used mostly to provide information about upcoming events or interesting articles related to teaching writing or speaking.

You may also want to hear Write Away, our faculty podcast series, featuring your colleagues discussing their experiences teaching writing and speaking. Or you might like In A Word, geared to the general public and broadcast on KAMU-FM every Wednesday at 8:30 am.
