    The Anti-Textbook of Writing, compiled by Sybil Priebe, is licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 4.0,\(^1\) except where otherwise noted.

    The Anti-Textbook of Writing retains some content from the original Anti-Textbook published in 2013 by Sybil Priebe under Copyright, but it’s been remixed with other OER, plus – the best part – diverse student examples have been added! In addition, the genres unit was expanded to include Tweets and Texting and Poetry (etc.), an extended array of strategies will only be included in the Expanded Version, and a chunk on Ungrading was implemented, too, among other cool things.

    Teachers should feel free to use whichever chapters work best for them and cut out the rest. Various formats of The Anti-Textbook of Writing can be found in this Google folder: The Anti-Textbook of Writing is designed to be the blasphemous take on college writing. Proceed with caution.\(^2\)
