We have recently released a set of teaching resources<http://wcx.sagepub.com/site/misc/Index/Classroom/TOC.xhtml> for instructors leading methods courses. These resources include an introduction<http://wcx.sagepub.com/site/misc/Index/Classroom/Resources_Introduction.xhtml>, an overview<http://wcx.sagepub.com/site/misc/Index/Classroom/overview_research_methods.xhtml> of methods in the field, and 11 method descriptions listed below. The bulk of this synthetic work was done by WC’s former Editorial Assistant, Abigail Bakke, and current Editorial Assistant, Kira Dreher. Each method is accompanied by links to what we believe are exemplary articles demonstrating specific methods from Written Communication’s archive. We’ve sought to represent a variety of scholars, disciplines, countries, and topics.
