Readings about Writing is a collection of student compositions from First-Year Composition courses at UC Davis (UWP1 and UWP1Y). The First-Year Composition curriculum at UC Davis uses a “Writing about Writing” approach: UWP1 students reflect on their literacy histories and their reading and composing processes, provide advice to future college students about reading and composing, and conduct research where they investigate literacy issues or analyze discourse communities. The projects published in the third edition of Readings about Writing are from UWP1 students taking classes in Winter of 2017. All authors appearing in Readings about Writing are student works, and remain the property of their author.
