Faculty Development Program in Writing across the Curriculum.
Sedgwick, Ellery, III
A faculty development program proposed for Longwood College in Virginia would encourage faculty members in all disciplines to incorporate more writing into their classes. The program consists of five major components and involves a number of workshops. The first component familiarizes faculty members with the theoretical and practical foundations of a writing-across-the-curriculum program and consists of two workshops conducted by outside consultants. The second component involves several workshops by faculty members at the college. These workshops show subject area teachers how to evaluate papers, make writing assignments, and move students through the stages of the composing process. The third component is a workshop for members of the English department designed to help them understand the implications of a writing-across-the-curriculum program. The fourth component is a workshop intended to help members of the college's English proficiency committee broaden the scope of its endeavors, while the final component is a workshop for students who serve as tutors in the college's writing laboratory. (An outline of the five components is included in the paper.) (FL)
