PERSPECTIVES ON WRITING | Series Editors, Susan H. McLeod and Rich Rice | Working with educators at all academic levels involved in WAC partnerships, the authors and editors of WAC PARTNERSHIPS BETWEEN SECONDARY AND POSTSECONDARY INSTITUTIONS demonstrate successful models of collaboration between schools and institutions so others can emulate and promote this type of collaboration. The chapters in this collection describe and reflect on collaborative partnerships among middle schools, high schools, colleges, and universities that are designed to prepare students for the kinds of work and civic engagement required to succeed in and contribute to society. The WAC partnerships celebrated in this collection include frameworks to build connectivity between institutions while addressing Common Core State Standards, academic and non-academic collaborations around science education, WAC partnerships in Argentina and Germany, and both long- and short-term collaborations. | JACOB S.
