I’ve decided to start a running list of open textbooks available for English classes (the ones I teach). I don’t have a lot of time to research this right now, so I will start with the quick and easy finds and keep coming back to add more as I find them.
- Writing for Success, Scott McLean
- Writing Spaces, Vol 1, Charlie Lowe and Pavel Zemliansky
- Writing Spaces, Vol 2, Charlie Lower and Pavel Zemliansky
Or, I could just go to this list that someone has already compiled at College Open Textbooks.
I don’t have time to review any of these books right now, but I do know that I plan to make “remixing” open source textbook chapters into my own class materials a big part of my move away from expensive textbooks that half the students never buy anyway.
