The Spyglass

A Sneak Peek at College Writing

The Spyglass is an untethered, and (hopefully) inspiring space for aspiring and new composition students and the people who teach them. Our goal is to support the transition from high school to university writing and propel students towards greater success at the university and beyond.

Our composition program at California State University Channel Islands has an incredibly collaborative and innovative team of faculty who are experts in reaching and teaching first year students, particularly those who lack confidence in their own talents. We are eager to share our insights in a formal and evolving digital platform that can serve as an open educational resource for all students, including the hundreds who enter our composition courses each year.
