Resources for Faculty

This page includes links to relevant, professional storehouses to support faculty in their work as teachers of writing. Explore assignments, research, and lesson plan ideas developed by scholars in a range of fields. You'll also find accessible resources for cadets in your courses, to better support their development as writers.

For support with WPWP-linked courses, check out our Guide for Faculty or contact your departmental WPWP Executive Committee (EXCOM) representative or WPWP leadership. You can also check out our permanent Sharepoint repositories with resources for WPWP-linked courses. 

Faculty at West Point are not just teachers, but scholars. In support of faculty writing efforts, the MWC serves all faculty during afternoon hours (1300-1600), when our post-graduate writing fellows are on shift. Get individualized feedback from writing professionals with advanced degrees for any academic or professional writing project.
