How to Involve Other Departments in Helping You Teach Writing.
Donlan, Dan
This paper asserts that an English department that wishes to involve other departments in helping to improve students' writing skills must proceed through four distinct phases: (1) preparation of a rationale for involving other departments in the teaching of writing; (2) administration of a writing-attitude inventory to colleagues in other departments; (3) compilation of a needs assessment for each department that is willing to participate in an all-school writing program; and (4) development of an ongoing inservice education program for faculty members. The paper offers suggestions for dealing with these four areas and provides a sample writing-attitude inventory, a writing-attitude scale, sample departmental-needs assessment forms, and a list of suggested participants and goals for a writing committee.
