The University Writing Program
strives to support our students with the transfer of writing practice and knowledge from their introductory writing course, through their General Education curriculum, and into their major. This focus on Teaching for Transfer helps us to be intentional in assigning reading and writing assignments that help students know how to apply what they practice in First-Year Writing long after they leave our classes.
Embedded in the work is critical reflection, where students write before, during and after the assignment they are creating in order to practice talking about their writing and gaining greater understanding about how they communicate as writers.

It is being staged by RhinoLeap Productions, the nonprofit professional theatre company based in Asheboro.
