A College-Wide Review of Writing Instruction and the Adoption of a New Program in Writing Instruction at a Four-Year Liberal Arts College.
Canuteson, John A.
This paper discusses the development of a program of writing instruction across the curriculum at William Jewell College. It reports on a series of faculty forums that discussed what the college-wide standards for effective writing should be, investigated multidisciplinary instruction in writing, and considered a proficiency test. Descriptions of the diagnostic test used, the writing center, writing courses beyond freshman composition, the proficiency test required to attain junior standing, the use of the ACT Educational Opportunity Service, and the booklet outlining the writing expectations at Jewell College are included. The paper concludes with several observations about the rationale for not teaching remedial courses and some of the advantages expected from the writing program. (TJ)
