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.

Forman, Janis. (1993). Business communication and composition: The writing connection and beyond. Journal of Business Communication 30.3, 313-352.
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.

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.

Kruse, Otto. (2006). The origins of writing in the disciplines: Traditions of seminar writing and the Humboldtian ideal of the research university. Written Communication 23.3, 331-352.
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.

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)

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.

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.'

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.
