This manual introduces the Transculturation model for integrating intercultural competence into first-year writing courses. New instructors will find a description of the curricular philosophy as well as the curriculum’s structure. We include all necessary documents for implementing the curriculum here. This document also offers guidance for classroom implementation of the curricular interventions.

We have written this manual with a Purdue audience in mind, but have sought to include context to help instructors at other institutions adapt the model to their particular curricular contexts. Please see our guide for implementing the curriculum in other contexts for assistance with introducing and completing this curriculum in other writing program contexts.
