UWS Awards Scholarly Excellence and Teamwork Awards to Writing Program Architecture Co-Editor and Chapter Authors

Congratulations to Jamie White-Farnham, who was awarded the Excellence in Scholarship award from the University of Wisconsin-Superior!  White-Farnham was given the award for the publication of Writing Program Architecture, and because she has “exemplified dedication to scholarship and tireless production of articles and presentations that meet the highest standards of her field of Composition and Rhetoric.”

UWS also awarded their Outstanding Team/Unit/Office award to Heather McGrew and John McCormick, instructors of developmental writing; their “hard work has played out in amazing ways: students report more confidence in their reading and writing abilities. In addition to these student stories, UW-Superior’s own Institutional Effectiveness data reports that retention in WRIT 099 cohorts has increased from 53% (the 2012 cohort) to 77% (the 2014 cohort).” McGrew and McCormick, along with White-Farnham, tell the story of the UWS developmental writing program in Chapter 18 of Writing Program Architecture.
