Writing across the Curriculum, Phase Two: Beyond the Workshop Empirical Rhetoric at Loyola.
Mallonee, Barbara C.; Breihan, John R.
Noting that most writing across the curriculum programs have been dominated by the thinking of members of the English or composition departments, this paper describes the program developed at Loyola College (Maryland), which involved collaboration between writing specialists and content area teachers. The paper first describes the Loyola model--entitled Empirical Rhetoric--a six-year effort supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), which is built on the concept of paired teaching. In addition, it describes the training of the teachers and the responsibilities they undertake as "departmental writing coordinators." The paper next reviews the steps taken in preparing and administering a program evaluation instrument, the "Survey of Faculty Opinions on Student Writing." It then discusses the findings of the survey and comments on the lessons learned from it. Appendixes contain copies of the NEH grant proposal and the faculty survey instrument. (FL)
