CSU ERWC 3.0 Customizable Student Reader Order Form
The reading selections in this customizable collection form the basis of the CSU Expository Reading and Writing Course (ERWC). The course is designed to foster critical thinking through a rhetorical approach to reading and writing. Version 3.0 has expanded to include more attention to concepts such as audience, purpose, context, and genre and to the process of making rhetorical decisions and taking rhetorical action. Through using an inquiry-based approach, the ERWC engages students in dialogue, in reading with an open mind, and in writing as an act of discovery. With more diverse texts and a focus on teaching for transfer, the ERWC also nurtures the cultural, linguistic, and personal resources students bring with them to the classroom and helps them to connect their learning to their everyday and future lives.
This reader is available for purchase by high schools that have adopted the CSU Expository Reading and Writing Curriculum. Other course materials can be obtained only by participating in professional learning programs sponsored by the California State University and the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association.
