So Do I Have to Put in All the Commas?: What's It Mean to Teach 'Writing Across the Curriculum'?

This workshop is intended both for instructors new to teaching courses in departmental Writing Plans and for those who've been teaching writing-intensive courses for a while but are unsure about the role of writing in those courses.  We will review the college's guidelines and rationale for Writing Across the Curriculum courses and make some very general suggestions about what WAC instructors might hope to accomplish with student writers.  Participants are encouraged to bring along any assignments, rubrics, student work - or anything else - they'd like to work on or enter into discussion.
