Designed to allow teachers immersed in Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) programs and those still contemplating increasing the use of writing in their courses to peer into classrooms of those who have participated in such programs for years, this book reports on the long-term impact upon faculty of WAC programs.
Stock No.: 56428
The authors report the long-term impact upon faculty of writing-across-the-curriculum programs by collecting interviews, questionnaires, classroom observations, student evaluations, and course documents from more than 700 faculty, one to 15 years after their first WAC experiences. Almost without exception, faculty members were changed by their WAC experiences, in some cases profoundly. What the authors discovered is that many faculty found the most meaningful changes they made were not changes in teaching strategies—since those were constantly shifting—but changes in teaching philosophy: a realization of how learners need to be involved in learning and of the many roles that writing can play in learning.
