Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC)

Writing Across the Curriculum

The Writing Across the Curriculum Program works with instructors to help their students think critically and write clearly.

We work directly with instructors to help them create well-designed writing assignments and effective and efficient grading guides. In addition to one-on-one consultations with instructors, we also offer seminars and workshops for faculty on topics such as the following: Designing clear assignments; Evaluating written assignments; Commenting on student writing; Writing and critical thinking; Using informal writing assignments.

The WAC program also supports instructors in their classes by visiting classes to give presentations that help prepare your students to begin their writing assignment. We follow-up those presentations with group tutorial sessions where your students can discuss their assignments, exchange ideas for writing the assignments, and obtain feedback on their drafts of the assignment.
