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.
WAC in the Schools
Adler-Kassner, Linda; Peggy O'Neill. (2010). Reframing writing assessment to improve teaching and learning. Logan, UT: Utah State University Press.
Public discourse about writing instruction is currently driven by ideas of what instructors and programs 'need to do,' 'should do,' or 'are not doing,' and is based on poorly informed concepts of correctness and unfounded claims about a broad decline in educational quality. This discussion needs to be reframed, say Adler-Kassner and O'Neill, to help policymakers understand that the purpose of writing instruction is to help sstudents develop critical thinking, read, and writing strategies that will form the foundation for their future education, careers, and civic engagement [publishing blurb]
Alber-Morgan, Sheila R.; Terri Hessler; Moira Konrad. (2007). Teaching writing for keeps. Education and Treatment of Children 30.3, 107-128.
This article outlines difficulties with the implementation of writing across multiple disciplines, grade levels, and individual abilities of students in a time of increased high-stakes accountability. Alba-Morgan, et al. argue that teachers must teach for generalizable writing outcomes and focus on big ideas. Offers six strategies for teachers to use to promote writing, the writing process, and the development of students' writing skills. [JeanMarie Dimitratos]

As a follow-up to the Central Wisconsin Writing Project, a writing survey was prepared to (1) introduce the concept of writing across the curriculum to high school faculty in the district, (2) determine the district's need for inservice in writing across the curriculum, (3) establish the validity of the data, (4) collect information about writing expectations in high school courses other than English, and (5) use the information as a basis for creating strategies and inservice specially designed to meet the needs of non-English teachers. The survey was administered during October 1980 to departments of social studies, science, business education, driver education, physical education, home economics, industrial arts, and agriculture. The results indicated that 62% of the teachers did not connect the learning of course concepts to the ability to explain them in writing. Seventy-six percent felt that all written work should be read and evaluated by the teacher, but while 50% indicated that writing ability had some effect on grade, no more than 10% said it had a major role in grading. Over 50% said that little or no teaching time was spent on activities to improve writing, and most teachers had their students taking notes on a daily basis. No other type of written assignment received much attention other than short answers on worksheets. [ERIC]

The author discusses the use of a 'fact sheet' as a writing strategy that can help develop analytical writing. Its basic design is a thesis with a list of supportive facts, intended to help students organize data. Modesitt appears to critique high school teachers for their 'sporadic if at all,' essay assignments without concern for the contexts in which English teachers work on a daily basis. [Vincent Cross]

Recognizing the growing interest in writing across the curriculum (WAC) programs among secondary educators, Ostrow seeks to examine how that interest translates into implementation in public high school classrooms. From the few responders to Ostrow’s attempted survey study of over one hundred teachers and administrators in New Hampshire, the author discovered a sense of confusion concerning WAC philosophies and strategies. The survey participants who expressed personal or school-wide involvement in WAC initiatives cited computer labs or other technological amenities as adequate implementation. The author admits that WAC is growing in secondary schools due largely to the usage of technology in the classroom. However, she emphasizes that educators need information on how to use writing labs and other technologies for other purposes than word processing and research. The author notes a need for administrators and teachers to deepen their understanding of WAC philosophies by dialoguing with other professionals and collaborating with local college and university classrooms and writing centers.
