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.

Collins, Daniel F.. (2004). Writing to connect through paired courses. [fulltext]. WAC Journal 15 (September), 34-54.
Collins describes the problem-based curriculum, writing assignments, and benefits of a 'thematic link' between a religious-studies course and a writing course at Manhattan College. 'One of [the students’] goals in both courses,' Collins writes, 'was to monitor and become familiar with particular positions as readers, to look at a text from multiple perspectives and become aware of their perspectives as readers' (p. 39). Drawing on the work of Bruce McComiskey, Kurt Spellmeyer, Joseph Harris, and Muriel Harris, Collins argues that 'writing provides a new lens of exploration [for students] into themselves as social beings and the discourses that make up their worlds, a kind of reflection that develops productive ways of knowing capable of helping them succeed in our classrooms' (p. 42). Paired courses, Collins notes, increase the likelihood that student writers will come to understand their own involvement in the construction of knowledge and to see the ways that knowledge is shaped by its relationships to social processes. Collins lists four direct benefits from linked course offerings at Manhattan College: (1) '[S]tudents in both courses moved beyond the traditional scope of each course' (p. 46); (2) Students 'wrote more,' 'wrote for multiple audiences,' and 'wrote with greater sophistication.' (Collins describes this as greater 'intertextuality,' synthesis and methodological-awareness in the students’ texts); (3) /[T]he building of community among freshmen students'; (4) '[T]he building of community across faculty' (p. 47).

Cooper, Amy; Dawn Bikowski. (2007). Writing at the graduate level: What tasks do professors actually require?. Journal of English for Academic Purposes 06.3, 206-221.
This paper presents a case study of writing tasks in graduate courses at a large, American university. The study investigates writing tasks across the curriculum and draws implications for curriculum design in English for Academic Purposes (EAP). Using actual course syllabi for task analysis, the researchers analyzed 200 course syllabi from 20 academic departments covering a wide range of disciplines. Findings indicate that library research papers and project reports are the most commonly assigned tasks across the curriculum. This study also found that professors in the social sciences, arts, and humanities assign a wider variety of writing assignments and more writing assignments in general than do professors in the sciences, math, and engineering. Finally, while many courses in the sciences, math, and engineering require no writing assignments at all, each of these departments does have at least some courses requiring extended writing.

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.

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)

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]

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.

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]

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.

Young, Art; Mike Gorman; Margaret Gorman. (1983). The value and function of poetic writing. ERIC Document Reproduction Service, ED 228 635.
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.
