Is there info on the WPA grants on the website?
Yes, I make sure that in my annual review letters that I document the extra training, grant work, time spent doing research, etc. For TT folks, I make sure that in tenure review meetings, letters, etc., I document this work as well.
So, I document for myself and for others—ALL THE DOCUMENTATION.

Such a good suggestion, Casie!

Thank you, Lydia
So glad the book has been useful, Casie! :)
Book title: Ruecker et al.’s _Retention, Persistence, and Writing Programs_
It’s AWESOME, Beth! Sorry for butchering the name. My mind goes to Resistance. LOL.
Maybe that’s the second edition! ;)
It really is awesome, Beth! I’ve used that book THOROUGHLY.
I agree! Folks in our upper admin have been highly persuaded by data that lower class sizes help to generate funding for the school in the longer term. There is data for this in PPT form on the ALP site (for accelerated developmental writing - created by Peter Adams)
Thank you, Beth. Your work has been invaluable to us here at Miami
