Exploring Critical Issues

'Exploring Critical Issues' is part of UTSA Libraries' 'Adopt a  Free Textbook' initiative to encourage faculty adoption of free and low-cost instructional materials in courses. UTSA Writing Program instructors and UTSA Librarians partnered to identify and collect essential readings for WRC 1013: Freshman Composition. ''Exploring Critical Issues' is comprised of both freely-available and UTSA Libraries-licensed content that, unlike a traditional textbook, imparts no additional cost to students. Research has shown that open and low-cost learning materials that are available on class day one can improve student engagement and, ultimately, course outcomes.
