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.

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.

Mary M. Juzwik draws on a grounded study to propose a hybrid theory of classroom genres that builds on Bauman's conceptualization of the 'dialogization of genres.' This perspective foregrounds Bakhtin's earlier and more literary work, while backgrounding Bakhtin's later, more social scientific perspectives on genre. In particular, Juzwik considers problems with Bakhtin's distinctions between primary and secondary genres as they have been understood by researchers conducting genre analysis in academic contexts.

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]

North, Stephen M.. (1984). The idea of a writing center. College English 46.5, 433-446.
The author theorizes the practices and image of the ideal writing center. The article argues that the idea and contemporary work of writing centers is misunderstood by his peers in English studies. They see writing centers as a place to 'fix' remedial students skills through grammar drill, typically, and where students are referred to centers by teachers rather than voluntarily motivated to go (435-36). North sees writing centers as a 'place to produce better writers, not better writing' (438). At the core of 'The Idea ofa Writing Center' is talk (443), and this talk addresses the primary concern of centers, which is the writing process (438). North argues that through talk about the writing process and concerns beyond grammar, mechanics, and punctuation, a consultant can become a collaborator who helps students change their writing process behaviors (443). The author demands that students 'seek us out' (442) and 'come looking for us,' not be referred by teachers (440). The author discourages, if not bans, teacher referral or the required visit (440). This is based on assumed values, not empirical evidence. The author states that sending them to the writing center is a kind of 'detention,' suggesting instead that 'when they are ready, we will be here' (440). [Eliot F.

Roost, Alisa. (2003). Writing intensive courses in theatre. Theatre Topics 13.2, 225-233.
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]

Beins; Susan R. Burns; Roy Smith; Mark E. Ware (Eds.), Developing, promoting, and sustaining the undergraduate research experience in psychology; Society for the Teaching of Psychology.
Included in a volume on teaching psychology, this article encourages campus exhibitions of undergraduate research across the disciplines. Sullivan presents three case studies, one from the historically-black Xavier University and two from Bellevue University (one of which focuses on a writing-across-the-curriculum event). The article sketches different models for campus celebrations, including half- and full-day poster sessions, performances and debates, and events integrated into family weekends. It doesn’ t favor any particular model, but it does stress interdisciplinary participation so that students in all majors can develop the communication skills derived from presenting their research. Implicit in Sullivan’ s discussion is the notion that undergraduate research is ‘especially helpful in the engagement and retention of first generation, minority, and low income students’ because it instills a sense of academic membership (295).

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.'
