UNCG Composition & Rhetoric Program
Welcome to the Composition Program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, which has been recognized in Rhetoric Review as an outstanding first year writing program. As teachers of reading and writing, we believe that all students can become good writers and readers as well as critical thinkers, and we act on this belief by providing classroom contexts to make this possible. Program features such as the All Freshman Read, the Essay and Portfolio Contest, and the use of portfolios as assessment progress tools provide evidence of our support and nurture of first year students.
Composition teachers are given the great responsibility in helping prepare students for lifelong literacy as well as academic success. To support new teachers of writing for this task, we want to draw on the expertise they bring to the classroom as they work with first year writers.

Here our composition instructors will find helpful resources, sample syllabi, links to professional organization and journals, as well as links to crucial related sites, such as UNCG's Speaking and Writing Across the Curriculum site and our Writing Center.
