Summary

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. The book studies WAC programs--collecting interviews, questionnaires, classroom observations, student evaluations, and course documents from more than 700 faculty, 1-15 years after their first WAC experiences. In the study reported in this book, the focus is in trying to understand how faculty members themselves construct the meaning of their WAC experiences. The book finds that faculty used the same criteria for adopting WAC strategies as for rejecting them--whether the strategy (1) created community in the classroom; (2) enhanced learning; (3) was feasible; and (4) fit the faculty members' priorities and teaching style. The book offers detailed examinations of the WAC programs at the University of Cincinnati (Ohio), Towson State University (Maryland), and Whitworth College (Washington). The voices of faculty members presented in the book come from departments of geography, nursing, criminal justice, math, music, and international business. Appendixes provide questionnaire responses.
