Keessen, Jan; White, Marjorie Ann
Two papers presented at two different conferences and both discussing issues related to writing across the curriculum, are presented in this document. The first paper, "Wanted: Guidelines for Teaching Writing in Non-Writing Courses," (Jan Keessen), presented at the 1992 "four C's" conference, discusses the need to gather data on problems in students' written communication encountered by professors in many disciplines, and then to create interdisciplinary guidelines for more effective teaching of writing. The second paper, "WAC--An Answer to Multicultural Diversity," (Marjorie Ann White), presented at the 1991 Minority Student Today conference, points out the utility of writing across the curriculum in the chemistry classroom, and offers several practical writing ideas.
