Further Information

The iWrite initiative is being developed around the philosophy of Writing Across the Curricula (WAC). The focus is not on teaching writing only as a way of improving the communication skills of our students, but also as a way of learning about engineering.

 

Ideas on how to add writing activities to your unit.

  • Talk with someone in the iWrite team (Rafael Calvo)
  • Read "Teaching Writing Across the Curriculum" by Art Young. (Originally Published in Print, 1999, by Prentice Hall, Upper Saddle River, New Jersey). Now available as PDF from http://wac.colostate.edu/books/young_teaching/  [PDF]

Further WAC resources

  • The WAC Clearinghouse, in partnership with the International Network of Writing Across the Curriculum Programs, publishes journals, books, and other resources for teachers who use writing in their courses.
