The Green Book: A Guide to First-Year Writing at GVSU


You can view here a PDF copy of a previous year's guide to first-year writing (aka the "green book"). It contains sample student essays as well as material for students that explains course policy, the portfolio group structure, and other things related to WRT 150. The main audience for this book is students, but it may also be helpful to new teachers. New versions are available from the bookstore for less than $10, so there's no reason to read it here unless you are off campus or just needing a preview.
