Proposal: Writing Intensive Requirement

for Literacy Competencies


Rationale

rationale

  • ensures writing-to-learn concept operational across curriculum

  • intervenes when student(s) is “progressing” despite elemental or even very severe challenges w/r/t writing

  • offers continuity from first year composition to continuing course work

  • normalizes writing as a part of active learning in academic context


Basic outline

basic outline

  • first year composition sequence (engl 1010 & 2010 or 2020)

  • 3-6 semester hours of writing intensive coursework in student’s major

  • 3-6 semester hours of writing intensive coursework from elective selections (to be determined by CXC committee)

  • potential mandatory “intervention” course at various levels of development (i.e., ENGL 3030)


Course models

course models

  • CXC Committee to develop course application for WI designation to be filled out by instructor, program and/or department

  • offer 5 models for course structure as it aligns with WI concepts

  • model 1: writing to learn

  • model 2: writing in the disciplines

  • model 3: expository/academic writing

  • model 4: professional/technical writing

  • model 5: interdisciplinary writing in academic contexts


Ease of implementation

ease of implementation

  • fyc already required

  • many courses already “fit” WI designation but might be bolstered in their efforts with CXC workshops, resources, and other forms of guidance

  • many courses may with some small effort begin to integrate more writing with CXC assistance

  • intervention can take place through collaborative efforts between teachers and CXC committee members (review of student work, portfolios, and so on)


Benefits to students teachers uvsc

benefits to students, teachers & UVSC

  • continuity of writing development & academically appropriate expectations from teachers will benefit students

  • CXC involvement may help teachers discover ways of integrating more writing w/out adding time to prep or grading (maybe reducing!)

  • upcoming assessments and accreditation processes are aided by the presence of CXC and WI initiatives on our campus, showing that we are interested in creating a “campus culture of learning”
