Welcome to the WAC Bibliography. The bibliography, developed and presented in collaboration with CompPile, was developed to support teachers across the disciplines who are interested in using writing and speaking in their courses; scholars who are interested in WAC theory and research; and program administrators, designers, and developers who have interests in the latest work in faculty outreach, program design, and assessment.

To view entries in the bibliography, follow the links to the right. If you are a member of the Clearinghouse, you can recommend new sources for the bibliography.

Alaimo, Peter J.; John C. Bean; Joseph M. Langenhan; Larry Nichols. (2009). Eliminating lab reports: A rhetorical approach for teaching the scientific paper in sophomore organic chemistry. [fulltext]. WAC Journal 20, 17-32.
Considers how an interdisciplinary team of faculty is striving to improve student performance on senior chemistry theses at Seattle University through an alternative approach to teaching the discourse of the scientific community within the year-long sophomore chemistry lab course. Drops the notion of teaching new students in formulaic, academic-specific ways, through utilization of rudimentary lab reports. Stresses the need to make students immediately aware of the inquiry-based, persuasive context of actual professional work and writing through collaborative-based experimentation that stresses multiple replications and use of evidence for conclusions. Suggests teaching the scientific paper over a year early in students' science careers and prioritizing students' 'writing process knowledge' through explicit instruction in writing within science courses.

Their study indicates that students demonstrated significant expertise in enacting a highly discipline-specific oral communication task. They attribute these results to a combination of students' ability to successfully deploy discipline-specific discourse to their own tacit knowledge of their field and instruction in both the disciplines of rhetoric and biology.

Blythe, Stuart; Laura Gonzales. (2016). Coordination and Transfer across the Metagenre of Secondary Research. College Composition and Communication 67.4.
Screencast videos were used to study the work of undergraduates enrolled in biology. Students were able to adapt to the writing requirements in biology because they implicitly understood the metagenre of "research from sources." Students coordinated multiple texts simultaneously to engage in processes akin to what Howard has called "patchwriting" but also similar to the habits of professional writers. The authors suggest that instructors spend more time helping students develop effective networks of information, including experts and organizations in addition to published sources.

Dixon, Dwayne. (2017). Imagining the essay as digital assemblage: Collaborative student experiments with writing in scalar. link to full text. Prompt: A Journal of Academic Writing Assignments, 35-46.
Abstract: This essay describes a digital, collaboratively designed and interconnected series of essays that were the final project for a first-year class in media and anthropology. These essays were composed using a digital, publically accessible, scholarly publishing platform that allows students to experiment architecturally with arguing related ideas through non-linear text. The result is an intricate, flexible pathway of pages. The assignment is informed by, and attempts to experimentally enact, Felix Guattari's concept of the assemblage, emphasizing movement and process of argument and evidence over static, reified trajectories of traditional essay composition. By examining the periphery of their own ideas, students encounter the interpretations of their classmates and discover alternate readings of key themes, which they can then fold into their own writing networks, ultimately creating a textual flow which challenges the singularity of the author and the boundaries of disciplinary thinking.

This three-year study confirms several significant effects of using writing-to-learn techniques in the nursing classroom. Specifically, it provides evidence of three areas of positive impact: (1) improved student attitudes towards writing and learning, (2) strengthened student-teacher communication, and (3) increased student retention. As a result, the findings create a strong rationale for including writing to learn in the freshmen nursing curriculum, and perhaps for instituting it throughout the entire nursing program.

This study looks at how college history students wrestle with and sometimes work around issues of theory, specifically theories of the causes of the Civil War. Using analysis of think-aloud protocol, the author investigates how students theoretical writing about the Civil War and how they use the theoretical material to take a position in writing about these same issues. The main purpose of this article is to examine the cognitive moves students make, their ways of thinking, when working with theory, an activity which many educators today are touting as particularly important in developing students' critical thinking abilities.

This article considers business communication's current and potential borrowing from composition studies as well as the constraints on such borrowing. It uses a citation analysis and a study of the arguments in business communication articles published in The Journal of Business Communication to identify the current state of composition's impact on research in business writing. After exploring the factors that may impede additional borrowing from composition, it discusses three major areas of composition studies that may profitably influence research in business communication: the historical and theoretical study of composition as a discipline, multicultural and literacy studies, and contemporary critical and social theory.

Gimenez, Julio. (2008). Beyond the academic essay: Discipline-specific writing in nursing and midwifery. Journal of English for Academic Purposes 07.3, 151-164.
Although academic writing in higher education has been the focus of research efforts for more than two decades, the specific writing experiences, needs and difficulties of undergraduate nursing and midwifery students have remained largely under-researched. This article reports on a project that investigated the nature and dynamics of academic writing in pre-registration nursing and midwifery at a UK university. The project collected data from a survey completed by 135 students and two focus groups. The article examines the specific genres on these two programmes, the difficulties participating students face when writing them, and their views as to how they can be best supported to do these tasks. It concludes with an analysis of the implications that these issues have for teaching discipline-specific genres in nursing and midwifery and offers some suggestions to respond to such implications.

Gottschalk, Catherine K.. (2011). Writing from experience: The evolving roles of personal writing in a writing in the disciplines program. full text. Across the Disciplines 08.1.
Gottschalk, a professor in the English department at Cornell, traces the history of the English 135 course offered at that university. Initially called Writing from Experience, the course began in the sixties as a way for students to eliminate the inherent limitations of writing in a particular genre. Gottschalk discusses the pedagogical evolution of the course, focusing on the politics of the academy since the sixties. She details each stage of the course’s development, as the English department transitioned into a genre-specific Writing in the Disciplines program. The course is no longer offered as a separate entity, but instead has been incorporated into the WID program, and the latter half of her article is devoted to analyzing the intersection of WID courses and expressivist writing. She advocates for keeping the essence of the English 135 course in current introductory writing courses, and she defines this essence as a balance of the personal and the professional in academic writing. By presenting anecdotal examples of courses offered at Cornell that blend the personal and the academic, she demonstrates how professors can incorporate both aspects of writing in their classes.

Green, C. S., III; H. G. Klug. (1990). Teaching critical thinking and writing through debates: An experimental evaluation. Teaching Sociology 18.4, 462-471.
Action research that addresses the issue of providing high quality instruction and feedback in large introductory level classes. Green and Klug explore several methods to find one by which students improve writing and critical thinking abilities, increase class participation and interest, and better learn the course content. Additionally, Green and Klug sought a method that avoided making "the grading load...simply too high" (462). They investigated classroom debate as a way to achieve their goals. Students in the experimental groups participated in debates regarding course material and the control group received instruction by lecture with some class discussion. Those in the control groups were randomly assigned their debate topics, including whether they would take the pro or con side to the issues. Results were measured through various means for each of their goals. The experimental groups showed significant improvement in student performance on multiple choice exams covering course material, rate of enthusiastic class participation, and students’ positive evaluations of instructors, as well as modest gains in writing and critical thinking skills. Students wrote papers collaboratively with their debate teams, creating only a small number of essays to grade rather than 50 - 75 individual papers. Green and Klug end by citing their study's limitations which include issues of sample size and randomness, and also address ethical issues of teaching critical thinking. They call for larger studies to better determine the effects of debate as a pedagogical tool in large introductory courses. (June W. Hurt)

Harris asks if making Composition a discipline has improved the working conditions of teachers; it's still TAs and adjuncts who teach first-year composition. He describes "Writing 20," the only course at Duke required of all undergraduates. It is run, not by the English Department, but by the Duke University Writing Program. The classes are taught by "fellows," non-tenure-track teachers, mostly with PhDs, from a wide range of disciplines. Harris says many are young teachers who want to improve their teaching skills before specializing in their fields. The Duke UWP is an interesting model, although of course it wouldnt work everywhere.

In this essay, we review literature that describes a work-related theme in agriculture WAC programs as seen primarily from teachers' vantage points. First, we trace the workplace-driven rationale for implementing WAC in agriculture; second, we review WAC assignments topics and teaching strategies that ag. faculty have incorporated to assist students' preparation for the workplace; finally, we conclude by identifying innovations in WAC in agriculture.

This article argues that traditional models of WAC too narrowly privilege academic discourse over other discourses and communities shaping the worlds in which our students live and work. Writing Across Communities represents a shift in paradigm informed by Ecocomposition, New Literacy Studies, and Sociolinguistics. A Writing Across Communities approach to writing program reform foregrounds dimensions of ethnolinguistic diversity and civic engagement in contrast to other models of WAC currently institutionalized across the nation. Writing Across Communities, as a resistance discourse, calls for transdisciplinary dialogue that demystifies the ways we make and use knowledge across communities of practice. [Reflections]

The introduction of seminars to university teaching marks the onset of a new teaching philosophy and practice in which writing is used to make students independent learners and researchers. Although the beginnings of writing pedagogy at American universities are well documented, little is known about its origins in Germany. The article tracks the history of seminar teaching back to its roots and reviews its historical development from the very beginnings to the point when seminars became the pedagogical flagship of the Humboldtian research university. Twenty seminar regulations from Prussian universities, written between 1812 and 1839, are reviewed with respect to the prescriptions they contain about writing. They reveal that a writing-to-learn pedagogy was elaborated as early as about 1820. The most important claim of the article is that an early concept of writing in the disciplines was central to the development of the Humboldtian research university [journal abstract]

LeCourt extends McLeod's notion of WAC consultants being agents of change and experimentation by suggesting that WAC consultants move beyond their current perceptions of disciplinary communities as being too rigid and resistant to changes in the teaching of writing within their disciplines. As the 'third stage' of WAC, LeCourt suggests that WAC consultants not only to use students as 'active partners' in creating change within foundationalist disciplines, but also use critical theory to bridge the gap between the two communities.

Longo, Bernadette; Donna Reiss; Cynthia L. Selfe; Art Young. (2003). The poetics of computers: Composing relationships with technology. Computers and Composition 20.1, 97-118.
This article describes a course with three primary goals: (1) to help students reflect on the complex relationship between humans and technology (developed within the cultural and historical context of the twentieth century) as portrayed in fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and films that focuses on technology topics; (2) to reflect—broadly, deeply, and from humanistic perspectives—on their own responsibility for shaping this relationship in contemporary contexts; and (3) to provide opportunities within which to practice composing this relationship in personal terms—expressing a personal understanding of humans and computers in language and images, poetry and prose, print and new-media contexts. In such an instructional context—while acquiring facility in making meaning within digital communication environment—students from different academic majors developed a critical perspective on the tools they used and became increasingly conscious about their power, as social agents, to shape the relationship between humans and computers.

Focusing on the practical applications of content area writing, and programs using writing assignments in all areas of the college curriculum, this serial issue has three sections. The theme article, "Writing across the Curriculum," discusses the writing across the curriculum movement, and examines ways two colleges have incorporated writing into their general education requirements and their upper level requirements. In this same context, it also describes comprehensive institution-wide programs, faculty development, and some of the problems inherent in implementing such writing programs. A second article, "An Upper-Division Writing Course," by Robbins Burling, describes the background and implementation of an upper-division writing course in anthropology. Thirdly, an interdisciplinary syllabus for a composition course is included in the report. [ERIC]

The development of Writing-across-the-Curriculum programs has been an effort to make writing an integral part of the learning process in all courses. This effort reinforced the shift in composition pedagogy from a product to a process orientation because the learning process and the writing process work together. Writing across the Curriculum has also promoted collaborative-learning techniques. Process pedagogy requires many drafts and much feedback, and small groups of students can provide each other with audience feedback that may be even more valuable than the teacher's responses. Writing-across-the-Curriculum programs are helping students find 'an authentic voice in the community of educated people.' (Bedford Bibliography) [WAC Clearinghouse]

Abstract: This historical analysis essay on the film 12 Years a Slave and several primary sources bridges earlier skills-based writing prompts with the final research project. It asks students to practice several essential writing moves that reflect the disciplinary approach of historians, without forgetting the concerns of film studies and literature scholars, and even filmmakers. Such moves include conducting careful primary source analysis and interrogation as a historian would; beginning to find sources on one's own (rather than being provided already curated materials); and formally analyzing a film in-depth, including commenting on filmmakers' techniques and how such choices impact the content that viewers witness.

Patton, Martha D.. (2011). Writing in the research university: A Darwinian study of WID with cases from civil engineering [writing in the disciplines]. Cresskill, NJ: Hampton Press.
How do engineers learn to think and write like engineers? How do art historians learn to think and write like art historians? How do journalists or biologists learn to think and write like the professionals that they become? Do we learn to think and write primarily by enculturation-or can we be taught how to write in various disciplines? If anything can be taught, what practices stand out as best practices? Needed to address these questions is a cohesive theory of writing in the disciplines (WID), one that accounts for both discipline-specific features of writing and features that cut across many disciplines. To that end, this book re-examines contemporary sociohistoric theories of writing from an evolutionary perspective. An evolutionary perspective of WID suggests that disciplines (complexes of academic arguments) not only change, but they evolve much like species do via a dual process of variation and selection in forums of competition. An evolutionary perspective puts a spotlight on what endures as well as what changes in complexes of academic arguments [author abstract]

Pobywajlo, Margaret. (2001). Changing attitudes about general education: Making connections through writing across the curriculum. [fulltext]. Plymouth State College Journal on Writing Across the Curriculum 12, 9-21.
In response to many students’ negative attitudes toward general education courses, Pobywajlo suggests that writing across the curriculum (WAC) programs and writing intensive (WI) courses have the potential to alter both student attitudes and pedagogical practices in general education. The author blames colleges and universities for student disinterest and negativity toward general education courses. Due to large, lecture-style classes, emphasis on breadth rather than depth, low expectations, and fragmentation among courses, students easily disengage from general education courses and fail to recognize the importance of practicing varied forms of critical thinking. Citing prominent researchers in the fields of WAC and composition pedagogy, the author presents WAC programs and WI courses as tools to improving the connectivity of general education courses. She purports that implementing writing facilitates learning, helps students find their voices, authentically assesses learning, grants students responsibility for their own learning, and encourages deeper reading. To support her theories empirically, Pobywajlo presents her findings from a survey she conducted among WI professors at the University of New Hampshire, showing that the majority of professors saw enhanced learning among their WI students. Finally, Pobywajlo calls for additional training for faculty members and continued efforts toward connectivity through writing in general education courses. (Cassie Curtis)

In addition, it will consider two group-written poems composed in a first-year composition course linked to the General Biology class, demonstrating how writing poetry about technical material not only promotes the acquisition of knowledge but also stimulates critical and creative thinking, leading to a more accurate understanding of the material and to a deeper appreciation of the subject.

Explains how to incorporate writing into drama classes. The author examines writing in her field, observing that drama students improvise, and learn by doing. Thus, teachers need to teach revision and structure. At the same time, writing should be practical: journals about students' own acting, group scene writing, and research papers that culminate in performances. Also explains how to work in peer response. [WAC Clearinghouse]

Samsa, Gregory; Eugene Z. Oddone. (1994). Integrating scientific writing into a statistics curriculum: A course in statistically based scientific writing. American Statistician 48.2, 117-119.
Samsa and Oddone argue that 'writing should play an increased role in statistical education and that this can be best accomplished by distributing exercises in writing and critical appraisal throughout the curriculum' (p. 117). They describe a master's level lecture course in statistics linked to a course based in discussion and data analysis. 'Over time,' they note, 'the course's emphasis shifted from the writing process itself toward issues of analysis strategy and other points of statistical methodology' (p. 118). The authors find that 'writing is an excellent mechanism for identifying student's strengths and weaknesses' and that 'students can use a linkage-based model to write more effectively' (p. 119). They further recommend the variation of writing assignments and keeping the assignments close to the student’s own goals.

Shumaker, Arthur W.. (1981). How can a major in composition be established? Suggestions through the sunshine and shadows of seventy years' experience at DePauw University. ERIC Document Reproduction Service, ED 200 985.
The English program at DePauw University (Greencastle, Indiana) has undergone many changes. Today, English majors at DePauw may choose from either a literature or a composition course of study. The capstone course in the 70-year-old composition program is the seminar, in which students write whatever they choose and distribute copies to the other members of the seminar, who write critiques of the work. Other courses offered include expository and creative writing, criticism, linguistics, and newswriting. Over the years, enrollment in the composition curriculum has been high compared to that of the literature program. The advantages of offering a composition degree program far outweigh the disadvantages, particularly since such a program is designed to fit the needs of individual students and offers scholarships and apprenticeships for journalism and creative writing. The DePauw Program illustrates that a school committed to developing a composition degree program must have sufficient qualified staff, should phase in the program gradually, should invite successful writers to present lectures to composition students, and should secure recognition on the part of other departments of the need for a university-wide emphasis on composition.

Sills notes that paired courses assist students in becoming aware of the 'connections among ideas and issues across disciplinary boundaries, and [helps] them gain intellectual sophistication by confronting and assessing multiple perspectives' (p. 61). She discusses the linkage between an English Composition course and Introduction to Sociology, where 'the professors were free to design two separate but related courses that would serve the goals of both the English and sociology departments' (p. 61). In this link, 'we focused on interpreting and communicating information as a component of the learning process,' Sills writes, 'accurate and effective use of language became a means of knowing sociology, rather than a separate exercise called ‘writing’' (p. 62). Sills comments that paired courses require a larger time commitment from faculty and that the relationship between the two courses must be actively managed by both instructors. Working together, the two faculty members can find an appropriate balance for 'pacing, methodology, and goals' (p. 64).[Michelle LaFrance, Linked Writing Courses, WPA-CompPile Research Bibliographies, No. 14]

Sitler, Helen Collins. (2001). The workplace meets the academy: The hybrid literacy of returning RNs in journal writing for introductin to theology [registered nurse]. [fulltext]. Language and Learning Across the Disciplines 5.1.
Like window glass, most workplace writing is transparent. Although integral to work done well, writing is not the goal in and of itself and occurs at a subconscious level of the writer's awareness. In contrast, writing for school is often opaque, occurring with the writer's attention consciously focused on the task. The writing itself, as evidence of learning accomplished, may be its sole purpose. The writer, graded on her/his writing, cannot afford to let the words on the page become transparent, nor can the instructor, who uses the writing to assess learning which has occurred (Dias, Freedman, Medway, & Pare, 1999). The transparency or opaqueness of writing, one of the key differences between writing in the workplace and writing in school, raises questions about how students who find themselves simultaneously in both worlds manage contradictory writing demands. What happens when writers with well-developed workplace writing practices return to school? How do they respond when writing is suddenly no longer transparent?

Drawing on Boix Mansilla’s (2004) criteria for assessing students’ disciplinary knowledge and potential to make interdisciplinary connections, Sterling-Deer’s study explores the use of Blackboard eLearning course management technology and ePortfolio technology to share course materials and to increase student reflection. Sterling-Deer discusses students’ writing and their abilities to link to supporting documents as demonstrates of their learning. She argues that these ePortfolios illustrate students’ struggles to provide their own academically and/or professionally focused ePortfolios despite the general-purpose ePortfolio templates. Her work suggests that students at LaGuardia Community College, CUNY are aware of the potential distribution of their work to multiple audiences, whereas the templates in the ePortfolio software insist on a single format/audience approach.

In this article, the author argues that the research-paper assignment can help students learn to negotiate academic discourse and begin to select academic disciplines to pursue, examines the relative merits of encouraging composition students to produce 'generic' research papers or encouraging them to adopt genre conventions of more specific academic disciplines, and also argues against criticisms of the research paper from those who reject entirely the 'service course' rationale and instead favor emphasis on helping the student find his or her 'authentic voice.'

Tarabochia, Sandra L.. (2013). Language and relationship building: Analyzing discursive spaces of interdisciplinary collaboration. link to full text. Across the Disciplines 10.2 .
In this article, I use textual discourse analysis to build a deeper understanding of the discursive spaces through which interdisciplinary collaboration takes place. Drawing on Norman Fairclough's (2001) framework for interactional analysis, I examine the linguistic features of a handout I composed to facilitate a WID meeting with biology faculty. Mapping links between discourse, language, and social interaction, I argue, allows writing specialists to critically examine our communicative strategies and their impact on the professional relationships we broker, empowering us to more creatively navigate the challenge of interdisciplinary collaboration.

Winterowd, W. Ross. (1986). Composition/rhetoric: A synthesis. Carbondale: Southern Illinois University Press.
Arguing that practice without theory is destructive, this books deals with the theory, philosophy, and application of a variety of subjects within the area of composition. The nine chapters of the first section of the book constitute a state-of-the-art essay and discuss such topics as J. Emig's 1971 study of the composing process and the more recent work of L. Flower and J. Hayes, cerebral organization and writing, the process and transactional models of composition, rhetorical invention, style, and form. The five chapters in the second section, which supplement those in the first section, are entitled "Invention,""Form and Style,""Reading,""Teaching Composition," and "The Profession." Specific topics discussed within these chapters include (1) brain, rhetoric, and style; (2) dramatism in themes and poems; (3) the grammar of coherence; (4) the rhetorical transaction; (5) developing a composition program; (6) teaching composition across the curriculum; and (7) the paradox of the humanities.

Structurally, a synthesis of reflection, information, and advocacy regarding writing across the curriculum; makes evident the continual need for WAC through a pedagogic lens; examines four significant premises that have undergirded the WAC movement and have thus allowed for students to become engaged in and supported by an educational setting, particularly academia: writing to learn, writing to communicate, writing as a social process, and writing as a social action; contextualizes the controversial nature of WAC by bringing to light the cross-institutional and conceptual resistance that it has faced; and concludes with a writing-to-learn assignment tested in a variety of disciplines and student writing from Young’s own classroom.

Because poetic writing as a method of discourse and as a tool for learning plays a significant role in many theoretical models of writing but is rarely used in practice, a study was conducted to examine the effects on 70 college students in an introductory psychology class of a mixture of poetic and transactional assignments on the subject of schizophrenia. Students had one major expressive assignment (journals), two drafts (a first poem and a short story), and one final poetic assignment. They also had one draft and one final transactional assignment. A checklist and open ended questionnaire were used to gather student responses. Results indicated that the poem assignments encouraged creativity and helped students understand schizophrenia from the inside, while the transactional assignments helped them organize their thoughts and prepare to communicate them to another audience. (The report also briefly describes the experiences of one of four students selected for in-depth examination.) [ERIC]

This edited collection brings together the perspectives of L2 students, ESOL and composition researchers, and faculty in different disciplines on what it means for L2 students to write and learn through writing across the curriculum and into specific disciplines. The first section is devoted to case study research on undergraduate L2 students’ experiences as they write across the curriculum; the second section features reflections by a L2 biology major and L2 sociology major on their writing and learning experiences in courses in their majors and across the curriculum; and the third section shares chapters written by faculty in anthropology, philosophy, nursing, literature, sociology, and Asian American studies on their attempts to address the needs of L2 writers in their classrooms.

Follows up on an earlier WAC Journal article and records exercises developed by a professor in an introductory psychology class, in which students demonstrate their understanding of a discipline specific writing text by completing writing assignments built around two fictional college students. To avoid plagiarism, the teacher modifies the assignment each year--as a play, then as a short story, then as responses from newspaper advice columnists, then as a political debate.[Timothy Woods]
