What to Tell Faculty about Writing Across the Curriculum
Some arguments to support writing across the curriculum
- Elaboration is a technique proven to deepen student understanding. Writing in the content areas is an elaboration method, and deepens understanding of the subject.
- Transfer of learning is like a rope, easier to pull than to push. We will be more
successful pulling transfer from First Year Composition courses into other subject areas than vice versa.
