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.

Annotation: Drawing on case studies of five L2 graduate students – two MA students in a Second Language Education program, a PhD student in Counseling, a PhD student in Educational Administration, and a PhD student in Education – the authors examine how L2 graduate students make choices about appropriating discourse when writing, how they identify their voices in source-based writing, and how choices of appropriation and voice relate to a student’s identities. They found that the less experienced graduate students were less likely to be aware of textual choices as rhetorical and as creating identity in writing in contrast to the more experienced graduate student writers. After analyzing participants’ writing, the authors discovered that the less experienced graduate students also plagiarized more and tied this practice to their educational histories and assumptions about their roles as writers.

Annotation: In this landmark chapter, Johns provides WAC administrators with an overview of the research on second language writers, covering such issues as differences between permanent resident L2 students and visa-holding L2 students; second language acquisition; error; and contrastive rhetoric. She then provides approaches for analyzing how and where L2 students are taught to write in a university as well as provides suggestions for better supporting L2 writers across the curriculum though faculty development, particularly in relation to understanding the writing development of L2 students, understanding and dealing with sentence-level errors in L2 writers’ texts, and the cultural complexities of plagiarism.

Annotation: Follows up on an earlier WAC Journal article and records exercises developed by a professor in an introductory psychology class, in which students demonstrate their understanding of a discipline specific writing text by completing writing assignments built around two fictional college students. To avoid plagiarism, the teacher modifies the assignment each year--as a play, then as a short story, then as responses from newspaper advice columnists, then as a political debate.[Timothy Woods]
