The John S. Knight Institute for Writing in the Disciplines at Cornell University supports writing seminars and writing intensive courses in a broad spectrum of academic disciplines and at all levels of undergraduate education. The Archive currently makes available award-winning materials for assignment sequences and writing exercises that were produced for Cornell’s First-Year Writing Seminars. Each semester, over 100 different seminars are taught in more than 30 departments and programs located in the humanities, social sciences, expressive arts, and sciences. Through introductory work in each seminar's particular field of study, students learn to write in a range of genres and in ways that emphasize clarity, coherence, intellectual force, and stylistic control.

All documents (in pdf form) are searchable; “Assignment Sequences” and “Writing Exercises” may be searched separately, or the entire archive may be searched at once. For a more in-depth description of how to use these materials, please go to the following link: http://www.arts.cornell.edu/knight_institute/teachingsupport/7100/atm.htm

So that we may continue to improve the Archive, please report any problems with searching to the Knight Institute: dlo1@cornell.edu .
