Resources for High School Teachers
The DRW prides itself on setting high standards for student performance in rhetoric and writing. We are also committed to helping high school teachers prepare students to meet those standards upon entering college rhetoric courses.
To meet that objective, we’ve compiled a list of web resources to support the effective teaching of writing. They explain our performance expectations, provide handouts and other tools to support writing instruction and evaluation, and offer examples of the kind of feedback students can expect to receive in DRW courses and writing flag designated courses.
We’ve also provided some information on our outreach efforts to high schools in school districts that are under-represented at UT Austin.
