What is ERWC?
ERWC is the Expository Reading and Writing Curriculum from the California State University system. Students successfully completing the modules develop skills, knowledge, processes, and dispositions in the following areas of academic literacy: reading rhetorically, writing rhetorically, listening and speaking rhetorically, and habits of mind. The modules are aligned with the CA State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy (CCSS for ELA/Literacy).
