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.
Important Note: We're seeing some occasional connection errors when we connect to the CompPile databse. We're working on the problem and hope to have it addressed soon. In the meantime, if you get an error message when searching the database, please refresh the page. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Andrews, Roy. (1998). Writing to learn in the music and theatre department. http://wac.colostate.edu/journal/ [full text]. Plymouth State College Journal on Writing Across the Curriculum 09, 89-94.
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]
