what is a writing sample when applying for an academic research/teaching position?

I'm helping someone out with their application and it calls for writing samples. Will reprints of papers do? Are they looking for something else. The position is in an undergrad academic department, so teaching is part of the process but they are looking to complement their current research strengths.
