The Humanity of Writing: The NEH Cross-Disciplinary Writing Program at West Chester State College.
Weiss, Robert H.
A pilot project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and a state college educational trust fund to improve writing in the humanities and across the curriculum is described in this paper. Also presented are the obstacles confronted in establishing the project, a seven-point strategy developed to counter those obstacles, the operating design of the program, the specific techniques of writing instruction adopted by the faculty members who participated, and other direct results of the project. A major support service of the project--a writing consultancy--is discussed, and the theories and practices introduced in the project's summer workshops are outlined. (AEA)
